Abstract Parental involvement in the career choices of their children has seen a marked increase in todays times. Cline and Fay, referring to adolescent school children whose parents seem to hover over and rescue their children whenever trouble arises. They were always pulling their children out of jams (p. 23). So these hovered-over children had grown up, graduated from college, then began to enter the workforce, consulted their parents before accepting a job offer. These parents have this Helicopter syndrome where they are ultra-protective and unwilling to let go of their children. These children bring with them an elevated degree of parental involvement in their career, which is a new phenomenon never been experienced before.

Keywords Parental involvement, career choices
