Abstract

Helicopter parenting is a form of active control from parents in solving children's problems and making decisions that children can actually do themselves. The phenomenon that shows the existence of helicopter parenting treatment in adolescents is completing school assignments in order to get high scores. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between helicopter parenting and anxiety in adolescents. The respondents of this study amounted to 125 men and 125 women; the sampling technique used was quota sampling. The helicopter parenting instrument uses the helicopter parenting instrument developed by Odenweller, and the anxiety measuring instrument uses the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HARS), developed by Max Hamilton. The statistical analysis technique in this research uses the Pearson correlation analysis technique with the help of IBM SPSS version 26. The results of this study indicate a positive relationship between helicopter parenting and anxiety in adolescents, with a correlation coefficient value of 0.685 and a value of P < 0.000. It can be interpreted that the higher the helicopter parenting, the greater the anxiety in adolescents, and vice versa. Therefore, Ha is accepted, and Ho is rejected. The recommendations for further researchers can add other variables that are still related to helicopter parenting in children.
