The thing with first-time parents though is that they do often fall into the helicopter mode at first, partly because they are new to the parenting game and partly because there's a strong societal push from parenting websites and blogs to be a helicopter parent. If you're there though gently pushing the parents to loosen up and chill out, you could be a really good influence on them and their child's future. It's well-documented that helicopter parenting does NOT end up with good results long-term, but that doesn't stop people form doing it.
