Research suggests letting children feel in control of their environment is vital for building confidence and decreasing anxiety. Children need the chance to problem-solve on their own. If you always step in to help, you're effectively saying that your child can't do it.
However, research also found that anxious children may elicit increased involvement and help from their parents, making them less confident. This means, if you have an anxious child, try your best not to intervene prematurely.
