Overbearing Parenting Can Be a Burden on Childhood Development reports Greenwoods Camp and The Grove
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 09, 2013 ) Decatur, MI -- According to Prime Minister Cameron's parenting advisor, non-stop rounds of organized activities meant that the time children go off to university, they have less ability to fend for themselves.
At the same time, Claire Perry notes that allowing them to run free all the time also can cause some rather student growth as well. Perry is a mother of three, herself. She told a newspaper: Weve created a treadmill. Its usually the mother that is orchestrating all of that and doing all the driving. We have created rods for our own back. Children need time to be bored.
Perry, who advises Cameron on the sexualization and commercialization of children, took a seven-year hiatus from the position in order to be with her own children. She noted to The Times that she herself has felt rather guilty for often hovering over the children when she and they were at home.
Perry notes that mothers subjugate their personal ambitions to their children, whether they mean to or not. With too much assistance, even pointed assistance, many university students can find it hard without the crutch of mother by their side.
She said: Weve all done it, now I just cant so I dont and I think theyre probably better off as a result. She continued by stating: We fetishise cupcakes, she said. I like baking but I dont want to make that my lifes purpose. We worship this feminine motherhood thing and I dont think our children have benefited actually. Theyre babied a lot.
Perry also adds that parents were quite often afraid to put down the hammer of father/mother knows best when needed, and lay down appropriate punishment for misbehavior.
Most parents are too busy, dont know the words, arent aware their children are doing it. They are living in digital oblivion, she stated.
