The Impact of Helicopter Parenting on Mental Health through Self-efficacy among University Students

Author: CHEAH LIN, MARIA ZALINA A. RAHIM
Abstract: Recently, researchers have found that the over-involvement of parents or ‘helicopter parenting’ may be deleterious to a child’s well-being and development despite the parents’ good intention. Unfortunately, little scientific evidence exists in documenting the possible consequences of this parenting style in Malaysia, specifically among university students. Therefore, this present study intended to examine the impact of helicopter parenting and its effect on mental health among university students through self-efficacy. The research questionnaires were completed by 212 university students covering demographic items, questions about helicopter parenting, depression, anxiety, and general self-efficacy. It was found that self-efficacy is a significant mediator between the relationship of helicopter parenting and mental health among university students. The result showed that helicopter parenting negatively correlated with general self-efficacy. This indicated the higher the perceived helicopter parenting, the lower the general self-efficacy reported by the respondents. A similar relationship was found between general self-efficacy with depression and anxiety. A greater general self-efficacy resulted in the individual experiencing depression and anxiety symptoms. Helicopter parenting affects depression and anxiety directly and indirectly through general self-efficacy. The finding of this research would add on the knowledge of existing research and can contribute to the benefits of children considering that helicopter parenting plays an important role in affecting a child’s mental health through general self-efficacy.
