I saw recently that parenting expert Michael Grosse has put out a new book called “Spoonfed Generation, How to Raise Indepedent Children”. When there are books that catch my eye I like to do a Google search and read excerpts online. I really enjoyed looking at this particular book. Grosse quotes another parenting expert that I found very thought provoking. It is relevant to parenting, teaching and people in general.
“Never regularly do for a child the things a child can do for himself.”
(Maurice Balson, the Australian parenting pioneer and author of Becoming Better Parents…this is what he was fond of telling aspiring teachers and parent educators.)
