6. Allow for Success and Failure

Allowing your child to experience success and failure shows them that perfection isn’t the goal, but that the learning and experiencing along the way is what matters most. When kids don’t experience failure they lack the confidence to take risks and face problems head on.

According to psychologists, kids that are constantly bailed out will avoid situations where they might fail. As these kids get older they may have anxiety or experience depression when they need to rely on themselves in a tough situation.
