The long term effects of sheltering children.


Dr. Rebecca Jankovich discusses the effects children face in their college and early adult years after leaving the homes of sheltering parents.  When a child is protected from the suffering that comes from making bad choices and isn't trusted to handle difficult situations, they struggle to bolster their own self-esteem later in life because they're so used to having someone there to do it for them. Dr. Jankovich offers fundamental solutions to avoid over protecting your children on Parenting. Dr. Rebecca Jankovich airs Thursday mornings on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and can be reached at 775-322-1839.
