“When children aren’t given the space to struggle through things on their own, they don’t learn to problem-solve very well.
“They don’t learn to be confident in their own abilities, and it can affect their self-esteem.
“The other problem with never having to struggle is that you never experience failure and can develop an overwhelming fear of failure and of disappointing others.
“Both the low-confidence and the fear of failure can lead to depression, anxiety, or self-doubt.”
Madeline Levine, author of The Price of Privilege
