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?"

Here's what I like to remind myself of when I'm seeking out the necessary balance between using my knowledge gained through experience and stopping my past from creeping into my present.
Once we acknowledge that we must undertake these five actions with joy and without regret, we feel fully confident that no circumstance of the past can dim the brilliance of our future.

I know I remember when people show up for me - it means so much and is a small effort in the scheme of things. Being there
We are both members of The Esquire Network (TEN) and he has been mentioning that we seem to have very similar approaches to the practice of law and suggesting that we should discuss it further over breakfast. We did just that.
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.
I started Common Purpose when I was 29, I am now 57! Stuck with it all these years because I am as passionate about leadership and citizenship now as I was at 29.
There was probably a time in my life when I would have had serious objections to my impressionable girls having dirt on their mom. I wanted them to see me as someone who had it all together, made good decisions and set a proper example for their lives.
