When you do everything for a child, the child loses the opportunity to gain skills, competencies and confidence. Kids learn through doing and once they learn, they feel empowered - prepared to deal with their responsibilities and challenges. Don't do your child the "favor" of doing things for her that she's capable of learning to do herself. She's NOT going to thank you later on.
