The Special Snowflake Parent
You think your child is a special snowflake and while they very well might be, that certainly doesn't make them infallible. Your child is 100% unique, but you often urge them to believe that they are better than the rest. You would do anything for your child. Be it helping them put together a project or baking cookies at 5am because they forgot to tell you the night before. Your kid is your everything and that's reflected in how you treat them!
The No Boundaries Parent
You're a no boundaries parent! When it comes to raising your kids, nothing is off limits. You have no problem showing your kids an R-rated movie or letting them watch the news. In your opinion, reality is reality. There is nothing you can do to shield them forever. Because of this you and your children have a more friend-friend relationship than parent-child.
The Hovering Parent
You are a hovering parent! Wherever your kids are, that's where you'll be. You're never more than one step behind your little ones. From guiding them to helping them out, you're always looking out for their best interests. You never take a step back and let them roam freely. Childhood is a precious thing to you and you're looking to make your children's childhood's perfect.
The Magic Bullet Parent
You're a magic bullet parent! You're all about quick fixes and band aids when it comes to parenting. Hey, parenting is stressful, we get it. Sometimes a quick fix is just enough to get you through the day. You're ability to think on your toes and work under huge amounts of stress is truly impressive. But remember, even band aids fall off. Think more long term when it comes to solving problems!
You are a cheerleader parent! You support your children in everything they do. Whether they're competing in a spelling bee or participating in sports, you always believe in and support your children. As a parent, you know that the most important thing in the world is showing your children that you're present and caring. As a cheerleader, they'll always know they have your support.
