Parent As Savior

This is a continuation of the Parenting Mistakes series that I started about a week ago.

I was analyzing parts of lesson 2 in The Total Transformation. At this section of the material, they were discussing different mistakes that parents make in their dealings with their kids.

One such mistake is taking on the role of “savior” for them. That means the parent protects the kid from the consequences of his or her own behavior. When parents do this, kids don’t learn from their own mistakes because there are no consequences to making those mistakes.

To make matters worse, another result of parents always stepping in and shielding their kids from responsibility for their own actions is that the kids soon begin to think that rules don’t apply to them. If you think about it, what other conclusion could they come to under those circumstances?

Discover and correct your parenting mistakes.
