Tell Your Child To Go Fix Their Own Problems

  • Your child is 100% dependent upon you when they are a baby. Of course, they are.
  • The problem happens when they are 100% dependent upon you after they’re a baby.
  • We smile and roll our eyes at them when they “need” us…and then solve their problems for them.
  • Let’s be honest…some of us like it when our child needs us. So we do things for them, solve problems, etc. that they are more than capable of doing themselves.
  • As your child grows older, they will depend on you as much as you let them.
  • You have to teach your child to not depend on you for every little thing.
  • Even at a young age, tell them things like:
    • I know you can do it.
    • You are smart and can figure out a way to solve that problem.
    • You are good at solving problems.
    • You can do that yourself.
