Abstract

The term "helicopter parenting" has appeared in our society and this study explores how helicopter parenting affects students' learning behaviors, such as self-regulated learning and procrastination. In order to realize the predictability of helicopter parenting to learning behavior, 624 questionnaires were delivered to vocational high school students in Taiwan. The results indicated that parental monitoring behavior can positively predict perceived helicopter parenting and procrastination mediated by perceived helicopter parenting. In addition, procrastination can negatively predict students' self-monitoring, goal setting and pursing goals relevant to self-regulated learning. The results implied that to develop students' self-regulated learning, the level of helicopter parenting should be reduced.
