Q:

What negative behaviors can result from overprotective parenting?

Member Added on Aug 10, 2010
Specifically, how could this affect a young man's ability to identify possibly harmful relationships with peers, especially in dating?

Many things can result from this. Whether you know it or not, he may be doing things to earn your approval. Some (not many, but some) do not date in order to please parents. Although you may not be aware of their actions, many things could be this way. Some of these children continue to act for approval, whereas most realize that they don't care what people think. The child may go off and act inappropriately to show that he resents you. Otherwise, he may just begin resenting you. No matter what, it is best to allow him to make his own decisions. As you continue to enforce rules, let him know that you will still love him unconditionally without putting him on a guilt trip. He will grow up as a wonderful young man if given enough space to breath, but not to much to turn his life around terribly horribly. All you need to do is love him to keep bad behaviors to a minimum, and regain a comfortable relationship! Best of luck! :D
