Have you watched the film "Yes Day"? My girls loved it. The family in the film a have day where the children, get to decide what they do that day. The parents are not allowed to say no and they find themselves in many hilarious situations. Dressing as super-heroes, and eating ice-cream for breakfast. At the end of the film the family have bonded and the children feel like they are valued by their parents.
It can feel like as a mum, that when my little girl can not do things ,that I should do them for her. That when she misbehaves or seems too immature to do things, that I should shop her doing them. Yet it is the opposite. Giving children more freedom and responsibility, can make them feel important and like they want to try their best.

Top Tips from Dyslexic Mum
Nature Born Leaders - Dyslexic children are more likely to become self-made millionaires. They are nature entrepreneurs and leaders. Doing a "Yes Day", helps them show what they can do and builds their confidence.
Helicopter Parenting - It is tempting to over-parent a child. Wanting to solve all their problems. Protecting them from all life's problems can make a child feel suppressed. The child maybe then more likely to rebel, and make poor decisions.
Family Bonding - Allowing your child to take the lead on "Yes Day". To have choices, to succeed, fail, shows you trust them. This makes the child feel valued, respected and helps them trust you more back.
