The dominant problem with parenting in our society isn’t permissiveness, but the fear of permissiveness. We’re so worried about spoiling kids that we often end up over controlling them. Granted, some kids are spoiled— and some kids are neglected.

Thus, one critical question…is how we can offer guidance and set limits (both of which are necessary) without overdoing the control.
