“Something went wrong yesterday I don't know what, but i literally got out of my house to beat the hell out of that teen when my kid came home crying, the guy standing out of our home damaged his new tricycle. How dare he do that to my kid ? ”

I hope from the above scenario most of the things are clear by now. Parents these days are getting too much overprotective of their kids. After all, it is their responsibility to nurture the kid in a safe environment, but sometimes they get too far.

Psychological analysis proves that kids having overprotective parents are more vulnerable to attain bad habits in their teenage as compared to other kids. Why? Reason is simple to grasp, kids bubble wrapped when are exposed to the environment away from their parents loose their ability to diffrentiate between the to dos and not to dos.

Parents being too overprotective often leave the opposite mark creating an overstressed environment, hampering their kids to live comfortably in the long run.

A lot more things could be considered as being overprotective of your kids. So what is the actual measure for it. Well, no units or scales has been discovered so far, but answering these questions below may give you a rough idea.

1. How do you convey your kid not to drink refrigerated water just after playing for long hours ?

  • I just slap him/her and dare not to do this again in future.

  • Well, I talk to him/her to adapt a suitable alternative and convince to avoid these habits slowly but steadily.

  • I destroy the root cause of the problem so that my kid be safe and healthy.

  • My kid never will do that because he is my kid.


2. What you do when your kid fights too often with every other thing in his/her line of sight.

  • I just slap him/her and dare not to do this again in future.

  • Well, I talk to him/her and convince to avoid these habits slowly but steadily.

  • I destroy the root cause of the problem so that my kid be safe and healthy.

  • My kid never will do that because he is my kid.

3. How do you react when your kid gets himself/herself hurt out of his mischievous.

  • I just slap him/her and dare not to do this again in future.

  • Well, I talk to him/her to adapt a suitable alternative or tell them ways to
    be safe.

  • I destroy the root cause of the problem so that my kid be safe and healthy.

  • So what, kids gets slightly hurt everytime, but suggesting them how bad some hurts can be is a must.

4. What would you do if your kid eats outside food more often than the food cooked at home.

  • I will just slap him/her and dare not to do this again in future.

  • Well, I talk to him/her to adapt a suitable alternative or tell them the difference between the two so he/she get to the good himself/herself.

  • I will destroy the root cause of the problem so that my kid be safe and healthy.

  • Nope , In my house food quite is good enough, kid won't go out.

5. What if your kid suddenly has generated eternal love for science but fictional.

  • Whoa, next thing he/she want to be a superman or supergirl, no i have my ways to tell that it is wrong.

  • Great, atleast he/she atleast have a source to imagine, mobile phone once use to be fictional.

  • I would like to introduce them to good bed time story books like cinderella.

  • I would like to introduce them to real science also, so that their imagination can take a shape.


Waiting eagerly for the results. So below is the analysis of the above test.

For questions 1 and 2 if you have chosen the second option, give yourself five points. But if you have chosen option 1 or 3, yes sir/madam you are overprotective and it is the right time to change. And if somehow option 4 then please start spending some time with your kid.

For question 3 if you have chosen the second option, give yourself five points or if option 4 than add four points . Again if you have chosen option 1 or 3 , yes sir/madam you are overprotective.
 

Add five points for question 4 if you thought of option 2. For options 1, 3 and 4 zero.

At last add five points for question five if you have opted for option 2 or 4.

Now let's talk about the total , people reaching to the total of 25 obviously they cheated :D . Scoring a 5 or 10 will tell you that you are overprotective of your kid. But a 20 can tell you that you are going good.

You won't get an Oscar if you beat people everytime your young ones cry, maybe it is high time to analyse yourself wether you are being overprotective or not.
