Michael Laitman, On Quora: “When should parents support their child, and when shouldn’t they?“
The support we receive from a young age builds us for life, so it is imperative that children receive support. However, together with the support, children need to understand that we give them support in order to progress them, i.e. that they have to realize themselves.
If we end up doing everything instead of the children, then if we later do not do something, they will feel insecure. Moreover, if we do everything instead of the children, then they will have no need for a sense of confidence, which ends up becoming detrimental to their development.
We thus need to support children in a way where they receive everything they need in order to realize themselves.
