About This Episode
What is the consequence to children when parents overprotect them or take over their responsibilities?
Parents today are often criticized for raising a generation of children who struggle to do things on their own, who return home from college incapable of earning a living or making decisions. The trouble with hovering excessively over children is that it stifles their potential for growing into confident adults who can step out into an unknown world and face the consequences of their decisions responsibly.

This Week's Action
- This week think about things you may be doing for your kids that they can do themselves.
- Do you find yourself cleaning up their room for them, doing their laundry (when they are old enough to do this for them), cleaning up/and or taking over their science project?
- Instead of “Stepping-in” for your kids this week, take on an attitude of a coach or teacher instead. As a coach you’re helping your child learn a skill that they take with them for life.
