Research also found that both parents (mothers and fathers) believe that parenting responsibility (specifically in the case of helicopter parenting) has to be shared among them and the responsibility doesn't befall a single parent.
Lawnmower parenting came into existence after a blog post written by a teacher in August 2018.
Reportedly, the parenting style got viral fairly quickly and everyone including parents, educators, and healthcare professionals resonated with the word 'lawnmower'.
This style of parenting is the same as the name suggests, i.e. parents 'mow down' any obstacles that appear in their children's way in order to prevent their kids from having to face adversity.
Parenting Based on Consequence Rather Than Punishment
Author Katherine Reynolds Lewis published a book in April 2018 named "The Good News About Bad Behavior: Why Kids Are Less Disciplined Than Ever-And What to Do About It."
In the book, Lewis has described that unlike old times, "the boss is no longer in charge of the dad, the dad is no longer in charge of the mom, and the mom is no longer in charge of the kids."
This parenting style (which is a suggested parenting style rather than one that is prevalent in society - though it can be considered as one that might be an upcoming one) is based on the fact that children living in today's society are taught to focus more on individual achievement as opposed to "their contributions to family, neighborhoods and friends."
