learn, and grow strength of character - or grit. Protective parents
can hurt the child, who may acquire a mentality of entitlement and

inspired by Jennifer Meer's article "My parents let me fail,
which taught me how to live" and Salman Khan's view.

as well as religion, morality, gender and social class.
