Hope less self-righteous helicopter moms and overgrown Man-Boys.

By the way, what is a "helicopter" mom?
post #31103 of 41941
the type of mother that hovers over their child's every move and interaction, ensuring that the child always gets a medal but never really grows up.

Someone who rather than letting their child grow up and figure out how to do things in the world on their own, insists on doing everything for them.

You know, the parents who write their kids' college essays, call the school and complain every time their delicate and unique flower does poorly on a test, and generally just act like insufferable spoiled pricks.

It seems incredibly common in brownstone/hipster Brooklyn, and doubly so in Park Slope where every child is the second coming of Christ and everyone else had best just get out of their way.

Park slope is indeed beautiful--we lived there for three years, right on the park--but I got real sick of it. Carroll Gardens is heading that way quickly, unfortunately.

Ah, yeah. I have a coworker who was called by angry parents when he sent his daughter to school on her birthday with cupcakes. The other classmates of the little girl had some of them and *gasp* they weren't organic. A consortium of parents demanded to see the nutritional facts and ingredients. No joke. /nyc

the kind of parents let their little girl draw with chalk over the whole section sidewalk on a very busy bedford avenue and make people walk around into the street to let their precious one finish her masterpiece. drawing on the sidewalks is great for kids, but not on tight busy sidewalks in that area - especially since there are so many side streets 50ft away that have ample room to let snowflake finish her masterpiece while people can still walk by easily.

then again it doesn't get any better for adults at union square park where "artists" will do their sand art on the sidewalks. at least they make money of their art though...

makes me nervous about having kids (because my mom was the very definition of a helicopter + asian tiger mom when it came to anything education related).

My wife has a long weekend this week and is planning to just bum around. I'm happy that she can decompress and do nothing alone for 4 days - because her idea of fun lately involves a lot of work (either drinking heavily, going on long road trips, or hanging with friends that seem to bring more stress than relaxation).

i hate to sound like a dick, but id sooner walk through some kids chalk art (though i would try not to ruin it, for the kids sake not the parents) than walk into a busy nyc street.
