38. Kate Winslet
Believe it or not, but actress Kate Winslet is what they call a ‘helicopter mom’. As the name suggests, a helicopter mom is an over-protective parent, that circles around the children constantly (you guessed it, like a helicopter). The Academy Award winner has three children, two sons and a daughter, from three different marriages, and although she indicates that with every child she has become a more relaxed mom, rumor says it’s the other way around.
Despite her fame and fortune, or perhaps because of it, Winslet wants her children to grow up as “normal” kids; she wants them to have a packed lunch like anyone else’s, ride the bus to school, and participate in after school activities. We can understand and relate to her protectiveness, we all care for our loved ones and want to keep them safe, but letting go every once in a while and cutting the rope a bit sounds like it might be beneficial.
