Without a doubt, parenting is a difficult life project. And, while every parent wants their child to be successful, an over-involved parent steps in to solve their child’s problems, complete their child’s tasks, and defend their child’s efforts. Competitive events, in particular, can elicit negative and combative responses from over-involved parents, as they seek to protect their child or ensure their child’s success.

This publication discusses over-involved parenting and presents approaches for youth program volunteers who may encounter such parents.
