It’s a parent’s job to protect their kids from any kind of harm. But Parents also need to step back sometimes and let the kids learn from their own mistakes. However, some parents take the caring for their kids a little too far. They off course mean well and are trying to save their child from bad experiences, rejection, sadness or pain.
