No one has all of the answers or solutions to all of the problems in the world. In order to deal with our problems, we have the necessary skills in order to solve them. Children develop problem solving skills by practicing problem solving skills, not by having someone else solve the problems for them. When parents allow children to own their own problems, not only do they allow their children to develop these skills, they can better help their children while not burdening themselves with problems that are not their own. Acting as a facilitator is easier when you are outside the problem looking in.
