While I am not sure I love the labels used here to describe different types of parenting, I do love the main idea of this article…”If they don’t experience adversity, how will they ever know how to overcome it when they inevitably face it in life?”
The article continues to say,
“Children rely on supportive relationships and experiences within their families, schools and communities to help them develop the necessary skills to successfully navigate minor challenges and problems. When these are present, overcoming challenges or “bouncing back” is easier to do.”
Do you think your child has a plethora of supportive relationships in their life? How can we create more or stronger ones?
Lastly, my favorite line in this entire article is “Reward the process, not the outcome!”
