7. Allow Them to Make Mistakes

As difficult as it is do this, it is vitally important to allow your children to make mistakes, as this is the key to becoming more independent individuals. Constantly protecting them from a fall helps them in the short run but does a disservice in the long run.

Encouraging your kids to be independent begins when they first enter pre-school. Lessons will get tougher as they get older but through it all, you know you are fulfilling your obligation as a parent.
