There may be things that you are doing that you don’t realize that you are doing to hinder the development of your children. You may think, that they’re just children and need the help you are giving to them, but all this does is create a theme that they can’t do it without your help. Give them a question with every question they have so that they can learn to problem solve on their own and give them a higher dose of the self esteem that they need.
- If you want your children to be independent, you should encourage them to ask questions and learn as much as they can.
- Encourage your children to go out into the real world and learn life lessons and create lasting memories.
- Parenting is a very tough job as you’ll need to find a way to balance your love and protection for your children while also letting them do their own thing.
“What if you let your child figure out a way to set up a system or chart to help them with whatever challenge they think they are having? They would begin to think independently.”
