I loved this short post. I see parents “over helping” their children daily as a public school teacher. As hard as it is to watch, children need to find their way to become self assured in their own capabilities. This starts when babies are learning to move, and goes on throughout their lives. I am definitely guilty of worrying, but watched many time as I knew my children were making a mistake, but am glad I hung in there.
I love this. I definitely believe that children need to be allowed to struggle so that they can become self-confident and trust in their own abilities.
