We are all familiar by now with the snowplow parent, the helicopter parent, and the tiger mother. The tiger mom expects too much of her children. When things don’t go according to her plan, she jumps in her snowplow and clears a path for her precious snowflake. She then climbs into her helicopter and follows her child wherever he goes, refusing to allow him to take a risk — or grow up.
