What are the ways that overprotected/sheltered children become abject failures in terms of
relationships, developing common sense/survival skills, being poor employment risks w/ some even becoming totally unemployable as adults, & being more susceptible to verbal, even physical abuse?
Trump had a very comfortable childhood - until sent to military school. Trump writes that he was aggressive and assertive from a young age. Trump has a textbook narcissistic personality disorder.
He seems unusually self-confident, and shows feelings of grandiosity and entitlement. These individuals tend to make a good first impression, but are difficult to work with because they feel entitled to special treatment, ignore their critics, and intimidate others. He'll tend to overestimate his capabilities.
Did Trump's Dad equate love with success and accomplishment?
"Trump is “a near perfect authoritarian leader.” As a personality type, “these people are usually initimidating and bullying, faintly hedonistic, vengeful, pitliess, exploitive, manipulative, dishonest, cheat to win, highly prejudiced, mean-spirited, militant, nationalistic, tell others what they want to hear, take advantage of ‘suckers,’ specialize in creating false images to sell self, may or may not be religious, are are usually politically and economically conservative and Republican.”" - John Dean
We just can't possibly protect and secure our children in a hostile world. It doesn't help them in the long run.
Just like allowing a toddler to touch a hot stove, we have to allow our children to experience disappointment and even despair. But once they do, we should be able to help them get over these things in a positive way.
It's easier to be an enabler and overprotect, but it's not what is best for the child.
Maybe professional help is in order, and the earlier it is started, the better. We really need a guide book for raising kids. Too bad they aren't born with a set of instructions.
