      You know I’d do anything for you.
      I can relate. The more attention you give such a parent, the more toxic and controlling they become.

    Dumb social science researchers again as usual lol - correlation != Causation. Sigh. The parents who are likely to push their kids and do helicopter parenting are unlikely to be unemployed or living in trailer parks. They're likely to be in successful careers with great networks. Might that explain the success of their kids to a greater extent? Of course.

      Are you sure that you didn't compare it with other employed reasonably well to do parents?
      While I agree it is a lot easier to be a social scientist than a STEM researcher, but I dunt think they can be that dumb

    False. No data behind it, most of the helicopter parenting is familiar with Asian. I do see a lot more Asian kids going well in school. A good leading indicator that they will do well in career.

    Economist1 view != Economist2 view. Wait a month and you will have 180 degree perspective / ‘findings’.
