Why Parents Need to Let Their Children Fail

Atlantic contributor and middle school educator Jessica Lahey has an interesting article entitled Why Parents Need to Let Their Children Fail. Lahey shares some less than surprising anecdotal  evidence that reinforces much of what the study puts forth.
The study Lahey is writing about is from Australia’s Queensland University of Tehnology and is entitled ‘Can a parent do too much for their child? an examination by parenting professionals of the concept of overparenting’ .
