Should You Push Your Kids To Be Independent_PODCAST With Judy Banfield

Should you push your kids to be independent?

“Don’t be such a momma’s boy.”  “Careful you don’t turn her into a daddy’s girl.”

When it comes to the development of young children, there is such a strong push in our culture to force kids to be independent, even before they’re ready.

Parents are literally expecting their young children to “figure it out” on their own.

It’s like parents believe that having a toddler who is dependent on you is a bad thing.

But what if I told you that your child’s dependence on you is actually important and that it will help them be stable, more secure, and give them the confidence to spread their wings.

This week on my podcast, I talk about the idea of your child’s need for dependence on you as described in the wonderful new book I just read called Discipline Without Damage.
