While I don't approve of helicopter parenting, I don't think you can point to this modern phenomenon as the culprit here. This thread is, after all, talking about an adult, whose childhood would have been well before the age of helicopter parenting. Love of appearance and titles over substance is hardly a new thing in our culture, and if I had to guess, I'd say that helicopter parenting is the expression of that love (sort of), not its cause.
As Basia states, I don't think we have enough information to honestly say one way or another here.
