That’s a Good Question! Podcast Episode 9: Am I a “Lawnmower Parent”?

If you find yourself constantly engaged in mowing down any obstacles in your child’s life in an attempt to make life perfect, you may well be a “Lawnmower Parent” and doing more harm than good, even with the best intentions.

In this episode, we visit with Dr. Dean Beckloff, a pediatric therapist and founder of the Beckloff Behavioral Center in Dallas, Texas. We are discussing the side effects of overprotecting our children and how to help our children become healthy, independent adults by letting them experience and learn from life’s challenges – even if they stumble a bit along the way.
