'Helicopter parenting' may harm kids' behavior 19.6.2018 The Tribune
Washington, June 18 'Helicopter parenting' — which describes an overcontrolling behaviour of parents — can negatively affect children's ability to manage their emotions and deal with the challenging demands of growing up, a study has found. Children need space to learn and grow on their own, without parents hovering over them, researchers said in a study published in the journal Developmental Psychology. "Our research showed that children with helicopter parents may be less able to deal with the challenging demands of growing up, especially with navigating the complex school environment," said Nicole B Perry from the University of Minnesota in the US. "Children who cannot regulate their emotions and behaviour effectively are more likely to act out in the classroom, to have a harder time making friends and to struggle in school," she added. Children rely on caregivers for guidance. They need parents who are sensitive to their needs, recognise when they are capable of managing a situation and will guide ...

Frankfurt, June 18

Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler was arrested on Monday in connection with parent company Volkswagen’s “dieselgate” emissions cheating scandal, with prosecutors saying they feared he might try to destroy evidence.

This comes a week after Munich prosecutors raided Stadler’s home, accusing him of fraud and falsification of documents.

Stadler is the most senior executive yet to be detained in the dieselgate crisis, which started when the VW group admitted in 2015 to installing so-called “defeat devices” in some 11 million diesels worldwide. — AFP

Trump admin defends 'zero tolerance' border policy; blames Democrats for crisis 19.6.2018 The Tribune
Washington, June 19 The Trump administration today defended its controversial "zero tolerance" border policy of separating immigrant parents and their children on the US border, and alleged that Democrats do not want to have a comprehensive solution to the current immigration crisis. According to the Department of Homeland Security, under President Trump's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents and guardians and placed into holding facilities between April 19 and May 31 of this year. "This entire crisis, just to be clear, is not new. It's been occurring and expanded over many decades. But currently, it is the exclusive product of loopholes in our federal immigration laws that prevent illegal immigrant minors and family members from being detained and removed to their home countries," Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters at a White House news conference. In other words, these loopholes create a functionally open border, ...
