I recently read an article on Psychology Today about how overparenting can contribute to loneliness and anxiety in children. The article discussed how children who are overparented tend to be less independent, lack self-esteem, and are more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety. I think this is an important issue that needs to be addressed.
I believe that overparenting can have a huge impact on our children’s mental health. We need to be careful not to smother our children and instead focus on teaching them independence and self-reliance. We need to allow our children to make their own decisions and mistakes and to learn from them. We need to encourage our children to try new things and to be independent.
Overparenting can lead to a feeling of loneliness and anxiety in our children. We need to be mindful of our parenting style and be sure to give our children the freedom and independence they need to grow and develop into healthy and successful adults.
