Helicopter parenting, free-range parenting and now have snow plough parenting style too? I thought parents contacting the child's employer only exists in Kdrama but apparently it is real...

I'm not sure if this can be good style of parenting.. we learn from the many difficulties in life and it might be hard for them to cope up when they are on their own.

Yup. Some of my older students and I have been following the political movements in the US for a while now, and across the board, it's observed that sheltered young people tend to develop "special snowflake identities". It's good to encourage your child to work in the direction of his/her strengths, and that the world can be a big sandbox for them, but teaching them to accept failure and rejection is crucial. Eventually, one needs to be able to come to terms with the rigours of working life.
