Although the term was originally used to refer to teens and college age kids, it can be referred to doing tasks of a child of any age when the child is capable of doing it alone. Toddlers and preschoolers for example may not learn to play alone because their parent is always hovering over them and playing alongside of them.
We want our children to be polite, follow expectations, be rule followers, but not to the point where they're always afraid they'll make a mistake or hurt someone's feelings. Then they're anxiety ridden and may need our help to let them just be themselves with flaws and errors along the way.
Often when things don't go as planned, we can become discouraged and start questioning "Am I on the right track?" or "how can I ever recover from this situation?" The path can seem dark and at times even hopeless, unfixable and irreparable; but I want you to know that there is no situation that you cannot overcome.
As educators, we understand the benefits of letting young people learn from their mistakes. By incarcerating them as adults, we set them on a path that makes further education almost impossible, condemns them to a dismal future and costs society significantly more than evidence-based diversion practices.
We need to focus on seeking knowledge and experience from the endless lessons we face through our existence in this world. We each have our own path to follow. Realize that you're doing the best you can with what you have at this moment, just like everyone else is.
