In part 3 we finish up the discussion on Helicopter Parenting by taking a look into the types of characteristics we each see as essential to being an effective and transformational father. We’ve talked a lot on what not to do in the previous 2 segments so now we want to dive into what we feel that parents should be doing to raise independent children.
In part 2, joined again by Jason Rimini, we are continuing the conversation on helicopter and lawn mower parenting. We hit on why it’s important for our children to fail and learn from those failures as we dive deeper into this topic.
Parenting is tough. Your children dealing with struggles, failures, and disappointments can cause parents to want to intervene in order to make life easier for the child. We see that as setting kids up for tougher times as life goes on. As parents, we have to know where to draw the line of teaching and enabling. Joining us in the multi-part conversation is father of 3, Jason Rimini who brings very helpful insight into the arena or raising children.
