4.  You don’t allow your children to do anything for themselves.

With independence comes self-control and discipline.  As your child grows older they will gain more privileges and should understand these privileges come with responsibility.  When you’re cleaning up your child’s room, doing their laundry and running to clean up every mess, you’re handicapping your children and sending the message that privileges and no responsibility are a natural part of life.  My mom would’ve never filled out a job application for me.  How can you trust you child with the responsibility of maintaining employment, when they couldn’t even get up to look for the job? You may be your child’s first teacher, but I believe experience is still the best teacher.
