When we help children or old people too much – not only they become more dependent on us but also less empowered from within.
They are not incapable – they’re just either less informed or slow due to aging.
Our way of communication also impacts them – instead of saying ‘I will do it’,we say ‘you can’t do this so let me’.
Help them only when they ask for it – strike a balance between being overbearing and being ignorant.
Do not control – just empower.
