Family Tip of the Month: Too Many Helpings

older-hand_younger-handThe Family Institute’s October Family Tip of the Month discusses helping your child too much.

From this month’s tip:

“There’s a serious downside when we step in too soon to help our kids. When we do something for them that they might be able to do themselves, we rob from them an opportunity to feel the satisfaction and pride that comes from their own sense of accomplishment.”

Read the entire Tip of the Month and learn how to encourage your child to work through things themselves.
