I agree with all 7 of the negative parenting styles, or acts listed in this article. Parents and caregivers want to be there and protect their children, I get that, and we should continue nurturing and supporting our kids and charges. However, Like most anything else excessive behavior can have negative results. Maybe next time you see your kid upset because another kid budged the line for the slide, don’t butt in, let your kid figure it out. Take small steps, it can be difficult to occasionally let your kids fend for themselves, but you might be shocked by what they’re capable of, and what they can learn by experiencing these autonomous moments.
