As parents, it's our first and foremost duty to make our children capable and self-sufficient. Our children are always watching us and constantly learning by observing us.

Our perceptions, beliefs, responses and reactions decide how they grow in their formative years and eventually, what kind of people they turn out to be in their adulthood. Their observations become the learnings that they carry in their adulthood.

It’s natural to want to protect your child from failure, but kids learn from trial and error - and so do we. How you react to your failures plays a very important role. Show your kids that you are dusting yourself and getting back up each time. They will learn not to give up, to keep trying and giving their best shot each time.

Be mindful when you react and respond to your or someone else's mistakes. Toward yourself and others, try to be less judgemental and more empathetic when you are trying to analyse the situations. Encourage your children to understand that everyone makes mistakes and the essential thing is to learn from them rather than dwell on them.

When children witness a parent in a state of anxiety, they can become unsettled, because they take information about how to interpret situations from the parent.

If you notice your child shows anxious behaviors, don't punish yourself for it. Implement strategies to help ensure you do not pass your anxiety on to your kids.

Being involved without smothering your kids

In Dr Haim Ginott's book Parents & Teenagers, teenagers used helicopter parenting to describe how their parents hovered over them like helicopters.
