Are you over parenting

There is quite a thin line between parenting and over-parenting. What are you parenting or over-parenting? Over-parenting is when you don’t let your child take responsibility for anything in her life. Be it anything – dress she may choose, tying her laces, or even as mundane as combing her hair. Our proparent blogger Nidhi Sharma Dhami shares what is over-parenting and are you one of the over-parenting parents?

As a parent I do agree that this is the correct time to make the child do the basic things on his own like wearing clothes, combing hair etc.

I agree... I beleive that children should do their things on their own. We as parents must allow them to grow explore through different learning experiences.... I have started doing that and it works..... good luck

let it be late to school one day but next day they will try to do fast as they will be more worried. I have tried it with my kids.

Hi, I agree to this subject of over parenting. I always try to make my daughters do their work by themselves such as my younger daughter started taking bath by herself ,wearing clothes and combing her hairs neatly when she was 3yrs old. Im involving my elder daughter in kitchen for chopping vegetables. My younger one use to mess the home but nowadays I taught her that princess keeps there home neat nd as a result she wants to be like princess nd tries to keep her things on place. Its very imp to make our kids self dependent atleast they could do there own work nd try to help us too.

What's the right age for us to direct kids to have their meal on their own?

This is a very good article. I feel our kids have to grow freely and have the opportunity to open up, and not always be dependent on someone.
