Savvy children; savvy parenting

Posted on Updated on

QUESTIONS FOR PARENTS:
– am I encouraging long-term dependence? (By doing things for the child that they are capable of doing themselves)
– am I achieving short-term gains (such as getting to places on time; having household work done properly) but paying the long-term price of children who feel dependent &/or inadequate?
