    For those who were overprotective parents, what caused you to be overprotective towards your

    children, how did your children respond to your overprotectiveness, & how did your overprotectiveness effect your children developmentally, emotionally, & socially? As your children became teenagers & adults, were they stymied because of your overprotectiveness?

    Society. The media and the way they portray mostly the bad. I have issues trusting others. I ended my nursing career because I couldn't stand the thought of having someone else watch my kids. I know I said that I have changed a lot but I still have a long way to go. I am terrified to let my kids play outside alone. I am here with them all the time. When we walk out in the parking lot, they are literally glued to me and I know that this is a horrible trait to teach my children but in the back of my mind, their safety is more important than them feeling independant. Now I have come a long way from what I used to be. I am paying for it dearly, well my son is. He gets sick more than any other kid I know and I am sure that me not allowing him to go out in the cold or go out to a public playground when he was little, to get the germs, to get a boost in the immune system, for his body to get accustomed to other factors other than hand sanitizer and indoor games. I know, I know... I'm working on it. And maybe this all factors into the fact that I am naturally an anxious person
