...self-regulation during early childhood, and social, emotional and academic adjustment in preadolescence (n = 422).
Results showed that overcontrolling “helicopter” parenting at age 2 (which was assessed in the lab) was negatively associated with emotional regulation and inhibitory control at age 5.
Moreover, the latter were associated with child-reported emotional and school problems, as well as fewer teacher-reported social skills and academic productivity at age 10.
In a nutshell, overcontrolling parents made it harder for their children to develop the necessary skills to function autonomously, the study suggests.
