Responsibilities and provide emotional support for their partners (Dalla, Marchetti, Sechrest, and White, 2010), so most patients’ marital relationships are not happy, which is not conducive to their emotional well-being. Despite this, the concept is not currently recognized as a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association, nor is it included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Interestingly, this psychological concept is still widely circulated, even influencing popular culture. Western movie star Michael Jackson once said publicly:
I am Peter Pan in my heart", and later telemarketing list named his manor "Neverland", which is the same name as Neverland in the movie. Coincidentally, local writer Yihua Lam also believes that most people have suffered from "Peter Pan Syndrome", and wrote the play "No True Love at the Airport" based on this theme. The causes of "Peter Pan Syndrome" are still debated, but the most popular theory is that overprotective parenting makes it difficult for children to develop the skills they need to face the adult world (University of Granada, 2007).
Even though the causes are different, clinical psychologist Groh (1988) found that the vast majority of seekers involuntarily seek protection in interpersonal relationships. Therefore, an effective way to treat this disorder is to encourage patients to re-examine and improve their ways of getting along with others. When the patient has built up enough self-esteem to realize that he is the person best able to protect himself, the course of treatment is largely complete. It happened that the "Monthly Minds" published in December last year mentioned that students under the "helicoptering" method are more likely to feel anxious.
