Abstract: Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the aspects of raising a child aside from the biological relationship. In many cases, orphaned or abandoned children receive parental care from non-parent blood relations. Others may be adopted, raised in foster care, or placed in an orphanage. This is a quantitative study that was conducted on young adults aged 18-25 who reside in and around TamilNadu. The study was conducted using convenience sampling method and 125 data were collected in the month of march 2021. Among these, 3 data were neglected due to the exclusive criteria of our study. To find out the estimated sample size, online sample size calculator was used and population size, margin error and confidence level were given as 78,800,000 , 5% and 95% respectively. Through this, the sample size was identified to be 385 but due to the pandemic situation, only 125 responses were able to collect. The questionnaire was composed of three main parts: Socio-demographic details, Helicopter Parent Controlling Item Scale developed by Baochun Z Hind in the year 2016.(See Appendix A), Psychological Wellbeing Abridged to 18 items developed by Carol D.Ryff in the year 2007(See Appendix B).The results from 122 young adults suggests that there was a negative correlation between helicopter parenting and psychological wellbeing . which means from the students perspective the parents of these individuals engage in a overparenting behavior .
