The good news is that the powers that be are shaken to the core. Journalists are being fired, activists jailed, dissenters muzzled. In the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections there is no doubt that the political discourse in this country will only worsen in terms of bigotry, misogyny and lack of empathy.
About Us — SHADES OF BLUE
Things are going to get real ugly real soon — and well-aimed jokes expose hypocrisy and double standards like nothing else. In China, search strings with Winnie the Pooh were banned en masse after Xi Jinping was alerted to a series of jokes about him being compared to Pooh the discerning reader is advised to check them out, only if she is prepared to commit to 10 minutes of uproarious laughter. Apparently there is a similarity in facial features and general honey-soaked chubbiness.
Before the ban took effect, though, Chinese users gifted us with an unforgettable image of Pooh sitting on a throne with a honey pot, a reference to Jinping abolishing presidential term limits in a blatant power-grab. This is what jokes can do: They can galvanise people into action, they can condense key bits of information into a memorable kernel of giggles.
This is why I am convinced that the current dispensation is crying out to be memorialised for hundreds of years to come. The only difference is that it is thinking in terms of statues and plaques, like that nice little eyesore opposite the Narmada Dam.

No criticism at all, it's just a fact.
Helicopter parents don't hurt their children intentionally, they just don't know what love is, because they have never experienced it themselves. One can't give what one does not have. Helicopter parents indulge and enable their children to become entitled, rather than independent, strong, happy, peaceful and loving. I have many a neighbor in my upper middle class suburban neighborhood won't let their kids play outside AT ALL.
Or, if they do, the kids MUST play in the back yard. They are convinced that the world is simply too dangerous to allow their child outside of their protective zone -- usually meaning their immediate line-of-sight. I have several neighbors who despise me, because when they make a comment in some social setting about how dangerous the world is for their children, I have this bad habit of pointing out that the single most dangerous thing they can do is allow their child to ride in an automobile, because the child is more likely to die from an automobile accident than from any other cause.
That creates one of two reactions: Either I'm lying, or they freak, and become hesitant to take their kids anywhere they don't "have" to go. Tell those gun owners that their firearm is the second mostly likely thing to kill their child, and you would think I just committed a crime greater than capital murder. Very succinctly written, especially liked writers comments on Tiger parenting, and instead of Tiger parenting it should be called Ring master parenting, my personal thought.
Would "race car parenting" be a good choice in place of fuel injector? It depicts the competitive aspect of the cars advancing and jostling, and the pit crews could be the families, schools, teams that these kids have helping them "succeed. Fear based parenting has conditions. If you believe your child's achievements dictate their worth or societies perception of your worth based on your child's achievements. Chair lift? Maybe I am a helicopter parent, despite trying to be trustful.
My tripping point has always been the internet, on-line gaming and other on-line influences. We "trusted" our son and all of us appear to have failed miserably. Now he is addicted to the screen, pot, junk food and the ADHD medication he managed to talk a doctor into prescribing for him.

He lives at home, pays no rent, works just enough to pay for his stuff and never contributes positively to any aspect of household maintenance. When I complain about the melted chocolate on the couch, he claims I am abusive. He is 23 and still seems unable to learn from his mistakes or take any responsibility for his failures. It would appear that the internet brings enough of the world to him, at his convenience, and he is not driven to make a better life for himself.
At one point do I stop trusting? I ask myself, how much am I enabling him? Chairlift mom, find a counselor on the Psychology Today site to help guide you through this. I only wish I had sought help sooner- my son is 27 and I'm dealing with stuff I never dreamed possible! Just finding a professional to talk to who will offer suggestions will help you immensely, and hopefully give you some peace of mind. Good luck! Heck, my household contains a disabled adult my nephew and his mother, my sister with an IQ of 62, seizure disorder and is on the autistic spectrum. He cannot drive or live alone.
He is on SSI because of said disabilities. Oh, and the biggest thing he is required to be is this: respectful, neat and clean. If he would subsequently fail at that and becomes a no load asshole, he will be moved out of the house pronto and into a group home. Needless to say, we don't have any issues with him and he adds value to the household by his presence. I don't think trusting parenting is the same as enabling. Part of trusting parenting is trusting that your child is capable. If you trust that your son is capable of solving his own problems, getting a job to support himself, and so on, wouldn't you make him do that?
I don't think throwing him out in the street tomorrow is the solution, but telling him, "Here is a list of things I know you can do since you are an adult. I will drop you off at the employment office at 10 am He may need your help expectations in place, you reminding him to shower and dress, you dropping him off at the place, etc.
If he is so troubled that he is truly not capable, then get him counseling So very thoughtful. I have no issue with parents watching their kids like a hawk.

Too much freedom. But that will eventually change. Their older sister is is the processing of scaring the hoozies out of them. Sadly, two more kids we know died of an overdose. They will now have to be afraid of more and more. Too much fear is actually necessary, it sure had kept many a boomer out of danger!!!!!!!! I had a wonderful childhood and was kept very safe and loved however there were many times that my parents need to keep me "safe" and "perfect" good at school, happy, thin overrode trust and connection.
I always knew something was off but I love my parents regardless and hardly see any parents that match their level of care and dedication to their family. I used to be kind of bitter but since I've grown I feel like I understand and respect my parents better. I'm not sure why my dad is always concerned about safety but after a certain point I realized it wasn't about me. It probably has something to do with his own childhood. Perhaps he was left to his own devices and made a lot of bad decisions he regrets. Perhaps he had too much freedom and not enough guidance.
I don't know. I think my grandparents let him figure out too much on his own and were more caring and supportive of his older and younger sisters.
He often referenced how his parents paid for his sisters' education which they never finished or used but were unwilling to support him. And then my mom had a really really rough childhood. She was verbally abused and brainwashed by her mother into thinking her sole purpose in life was to serve her.
She was also raped, one time by a family member. She struggled with mental health issues for a long time. To sum it up, I think she had the absolute worst childhood and did her best to raise me like a princess. Reflecting on their personal challenges, I actually have a deeper appreciation and respect for the parenting they were able to give me and continue to today!
They always learn and our relationships continue to grow. Shortly after I moved out, my dad noticed that his opinions and advice pushed me away and vowed to never offer them unless asked. When I was 12, my mom told me she was going to leave our family but never did, thank God! Also the fact that I was so hurt at the thought of her leaving is a testament to the strong bond that we had. I couldn't have gotten to where I am without them. I had a better childhood than most.
However, I will not be recreating my childhood for my children. It's taken me a long time to find my style.
But what it is now lines up perfectly with how you describe as trustful parenting. I'm trusting my kids, trusting myself, and most of all trusting God. He is our Creator, the only worthy potter, and the ultimate shepherd. The humility, forgiveness, and trust I find in Him allows me to fully embrace parenthood in a way that feels whole and complete.
