"Helicopter parents" nghĩa là gì?

'Helicopter parents' (cha mẹ trực thăng) nghĩa là cha mẹ quan tâm quá mức chặt chẽ tới các vấn đề hay trải nghiệm của con, đặc biệt là ở trường học (a parent who pays extremely close attention to a child's or children's experiences and problems, particularly at educational institutions), có tên như vậy vì, cũng như trực thăng, lúc nào cũng bay (lởn vởn) trên đầu.

Ví dụ
You neglected to mention that other insufferable (không thể chịu đựng được) stereotype (mẫu rập khuôn) that certainly inhabits Summertown – yes you’ve guessed it, The ‘Helicopter’ Parent. They cannot prevent themselves hovering around their offspring at the expense of everyone else.

Helicopter parenting was the most common behavior reported by parents, but it wasn’t associated with physical activity. The reason for this isn’t clear, but a possible explanation is that the hyperparenting scores for the helicopter parents were all quite high...

If anything, parents who live in poverty are more likely to be helicopter parents. They're more worried about their children when they go to school, whether they'll be sucked into (bị lôi kéo vào) gang life or teaching them how to duck when they hear gunfire and all kinds of stuff because they understand some of the risks that their children may be exposed to.

Facebook khiến cuộc sống thực thêm tiêu cực

We live in the age of social media, an age where we collect friends like stamps. However, there seems to be a connection between using social networks and being lonely. At 0:40 I was shocked but my mind was blown at 3:40.

Súng, vi trùng và thép

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book and national best seller, Guns, Germs, and Steel is an epic detective story that offers a gripping expose on why the world is so unequal. Professor Jared Diamond traveled the globe for over 30 years trying to answer the biggest question of world history. Why is the world so unequal? The answers he found were simple yet extraordinary. Our destiny depends on geography and access to: Guns, Germs, and Steel. Weaving together anthropology and science with epic historical reenactments, Guns, Germs, and Steel brings Diamond's fascinating theories to life, and moves beyond the book to bring his ideas into the present day.
