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?

Parenting is an Art! so never over do it. You need to know the balance between caring and Pampering.

Kids will never listen to you, but will always imitate you. They are great imitators. so do what you expect them to do in front of them. Tie your shoes and let them tie their shoes. Eat in front of them. so they can watch and imitate. Never force feed them, it always backfires in big way later.

hi there!! for moms who are unable to make the kids eat..... here's the mantra..... firstly allow your child to sit beside you n have food from your plate but a bit side I mean divide his part of food n encourage him or her to eat ...no matter how much mess they make ....or time they take secondly n slowly give them little amounts of food to taste .....n eat by themselves.... start with their favorite one..... n give compliments n encouragement..... initially it takes lot of patience n time for mothers but this really works.... coz it's my experience with my 4 years daughter...

Thanks for sharing such wonderful message with us. on most occasions, we as humans err without knowing that we actually did. May be we are so burdened with our work, or relationship or any other thing that revolves around our lives that we don't see the cause of our failures. And, yes, this affects our parenting too. so, I truly agree with your point that we should not over do with our children.

Hi monika ... on a regular and casual basis ask your children to do small tasks which they can perform or at least they can try.. initially they may mess up with lot of things but eventually they will learn if you guide them by helping and correcting them.. Also I feel we should not force them but it should be very casually done

I agree to this. My daughter is 4. 5 years old so I would like to know what tasks are there that she can do by herself .. she brushes herself in my observation ..she can wear her jacket and zip up ..she can wear her socks and leggings ..still she doesn't eat her food properly doesn't finish it i hv to feed her.. I hv a 11 months old son also so I hv to feed him also..

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.

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.
