Helicopter Parent backlash, their Helicopter Kids are taking over!

 Millennials embarrassed by their parents inability to keep up with change are taking over their parents lives.

helicopter-kids-millennials
Whether a Hipster, Haul Girl, SeaPunk, Goth, Nerd, or Geek Feminist they are all concerned about their parent’s image

Controlling helicopter parents are now getting the backlash from their adult children. Raised under the umbrella of perfection they are turning the tables on their parents.

parents-and-technology
When they were younger it was funny when their parents were scared of technology – smart phones, the internet, programing VCR clocks

When they were kids Millennials joked about their parents not being able to program their VCR clock, save numbers on their flip phone, and showed fear of the internet. As adults they don’t find it funny anymore. They don’t want to be embarrassed in front of their friends or work colleagues in public or online. So they are flipping roles with their helicopter parents.

helicopter-kids-bad-clothes
When the kids were young their parents could wear terrible clothes but their friends rarely saw them so they didn’t care.

As millennial kids hit their late teens they began with  giving parents direction and advice about what was appropriate. But they never crossed paths socially  so that was as far as it went.

Over time this advice backfired as parents became more courageous with technology and social media. This made their lifestyle intersect with their adult children and it was not pretty.

Taking over their parents social media profiles like a corporate webmaster

Embarrassing social media posts left the kids wide open for ridicule from their online friends and they did not like it. The solution was something they learned directly from their parents as they were growing up – the Helicopter method.

helicopter-kids-emabarrased
Helicopter kids drew the line when their parent’s “inappropriate” content hit social media

They have taken to going through their parents wardrobe like a reality show – purging what they don’t approval of and giving direction on what to buy. Many are using apps to put together and schedule their parents daily wardrobe choices.

They are also taking over their parents social media profiles like they are a corporate webmaster. They approve any photos that are uploaded, and have passwords so they can delete any comments, tweets or likes they don’t approve.

It sounds pretty harsh but that is the way they were brought up.

Have you seen this behavior in your circle of friends?


What you must always remember is that change is good for you, that in the long-term everything transforms itself from the lower to the higher.
