Lawnmower Parents are “the parents who rush ahead to intervene, saving the child from any potential inconvenience, problem or discomfort.”
Avoid becoming a Lawnmower Parent. Let school-age children do the talking as often as possible, from ordering at restaurants to calling friends. Insist that high school students attempt all communication on their own first, from asking for make-up quizzes to resolving conflict. And for kids of all ages, TRUST them. “Give [them] room to make mistakes, even major ones sometimes, and learn from them together.”
