... satisfy their own needs (*)

Apparently 'overparenting' more true in the affluent communities.

A lot of studies/reports have been done on 'underparenting', and not the subject of this article.

I’m trying my best to raise my kids with the right balance of what this article mentions. I’ve seen way to many kids who are now in their 20’s and have absolutely no direction, no problem-solving abilities, no incentive to get anything done, simply because they’ve been spoiled so much all their lives. They’re used to having everything handed to them and every problem solved by someone else.

My 12 and 6 year old get heaping doses of “Solve the problem yourself before bringing it to me” every day. If it’s one thing I do right as a parent, that’ll be it I hope. I can’t stand the sniveling, dependent, “fix it for me” generation that’s been produced.
