Elephant Parenting

Elephant parenting is an informal term that was originally coined by the American sociologist Letitia Anne Peplau in 1987 to describe a form of over-controlling, smothering, and restrictive child-rearing. It has since come to be used as shorthand for describing parents who are too involved in their children's lives or who make their children's decisions for them.

The phrase "elephant parenting" comes from the idea that parents act like elephants with blinders on their ears—they only see what is right in front of them and do not hear what is happening around them.
