Researchers Say More Moms And Dads Are Pushing Their Kids To Live Out Parental Dreams

You've probably heard the term helicopter parent used to describe an overprotective mom or dad.

But a new study out of the Netherlands found some parents are taking things a step farther, essentially living through their kids.

Researchers from Utrecht University looked at 73 parents of children between 8 and 15, and found the more a mother or father sees the child as part of themselves, the more likely they are to want the child to succeed in making the parents' dreams come true.
