Parenting in this economy (Part 3 of 10)

Tip #3- Try not to over do it Too much comfort or indulging of children  can have the opposite effect. For example, when a teen is afraid to sleep in their own bed, an alternative is to go back to their bed with them until they settle into sleep. To have them sleep in your bed gives them the message, “yes, you have something to be afraid of in your bed.”
