Most overprotected kids don’t respond well to minor life setbacks, and often struggle to manage disappointments. They also exhibit difficulty in taking responsibilities for their actions, since their parents often fight their life’s battles for them. Lastly, such children usually resent their parents’ almost authoritarian control over their lives, thus rebelling more than their normally parented counterparts.
If you’re a single parent who needs help in managing overprotective tendencies, it’s not too late to change. The Bridge Across offers single parent help and education to help you understand how you can help your children in the long term, despite the circumstances of being alone. Always remember that when you improve your own parenting, you end up easing your child’s journey through life as well.
