Are we raising Fearful Kids?
Today when I went down, saw kids learning bicycle with all protective gears in place and covered from head to toe... made me go back to my time when I learnt bicycle without any such fancy gears! I learnt by falling innumerable times and getting bruises and putting the “lal dawai “(mercurochrome)
So are we raising fearful kids these days? May be the situation has changed and we continuously hear horrific stories of abduction, death, abuse but in all of this a point not to be missed is that are we creating an overprotective environment for our kids ? A lil bit of fear is important I agree but should we Instill anxiety and fear in the kids minds ? .
All I feel that we can relax a bit and take gentle risks with the kids for them to figure it out themselves and basically gain independence... am I rite ? . What’s your take on this moms? What’s your parenting philosophy like ? What makes you worry about your child’s safety ? .
