Parents hovering V's. kids never grow up
Debate Rounds (3)
orphans mature far quicker, mentally, than normal children because they have to look out for themselves.
Did you seriously just say "kids are learning how too be more dependent and grow up like they should" I think that you must firstly understand what dependence is.
Dependence: the state of relying on or being controlled by someone or something else. http://oxforddictionaries.com...
However, what do you actually gain from being dependent? THE FORTUNE OF BEING A CHILD FOR LONGER IN A STATE of immaturity! If anything, this is the opposite of growing up, growing up is a burden, it's not a choice orphans get.
Have overbearing parents builds a mentality in a child that "It's okay, I don't have to think, I'll just trust in authority" but an adult is supposed to have opinions of THEIR OWN and to manage with THEIR OWN ability to structure their lives, I agree that having overbearing parents is a privilege if they're rich and dish out tutors to you but it is not going to ever teach that spoilt brat to grow up.
In essence, an overbearing parents is a child's getaway ticket from having to ever really grow up in the first place.
so yes i would have to say that you do need to hover and become and ore and better parent and have your kid be a young adult.
If you don't hover and instead let them have to be forced to look after themselves there is no way whatsoever they will never grow up. I have done well as con and you have failed to meet your BOP.
