When our kids are young, we have to do everything for them. But as they grow up, some moms get stuck continuing to do for their kids what they can and ought to do for themselves. Today Karen encourages us all to take a step back so our kids can step up, and suggests appropriate tasks for our kids to “own,” whether they are 6 or 16. Don’t miss the connection between kids who take ownership and confident kids!
