    The article is nice. Happy that from being I am not a helicopter parent. Thought we are not helicopter parents but we face challenges from grandparents which they would have missed out on us. I think this article is good read for grandparents also as they tend to pamper their grandchildren.

    I am proud of my father he followed these approaches. Personally, I feel very difficult to get attention of my both son one 3 yrs and another 6 yrs. Any article to engage these little ones are really appreciated.

    Nice article. It has prompted me to re-think the way we wanted to grow up our kids.

    being a father of two grown up sons i have gone thru all this & soon realized my mistake. but it is very painful to see your child failing.let us learn to celebrate failure of our children.
