Amber Alert

Family Minute #35

Are you raising wimps?

A recent article titled “Nation of Wimps” was featured in Psychology Today. The article warned of increasing depression and anxiety in children and young adults, and a delayed age in achieving traditional adulthood responsibilities. The culprit? According to the author, it’s parents who coddle their children too much—parents who don't let their children work through their own problems and face the consequences of their actions.

It’s ironic—the more you let your children face consequences and suffer in small ways, the happier and better adjusted they will be in life. So make your family wimp-free.

Remember your family first.
