Why 'lazy parenting' is actually a recipe for happy families - Motherly
Carolyn Wagner, in Motherly, describes "lazy parenting," or as we knew it when we were growing up: "Parenting." Highlights include natural consequences and self-sufficiency. It's a shocker, folks, you might have to try it.
"In general, intentionally lazy parenting is the shift in thinking from, 'I need to move in and fix this for my kid' to, 'I need to step back and see if my kid can manage this on their own. It might take longer and be messier, but if they can do it themselves, then they should.'"
