When a parent “hovers” over his child, we call it helicopter parenting. Others might call that child-centered parenting. Sadly, it confirms to the child that the world actually DOES revolve around him or her. We are all born thinking that; helicopter parenting just confirms it.
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3)
