Abstract/Description: This is an argument against overprotective parenting. Those who do so are creating an environment that limits their children's psychological and moral growth and development. Overprotective parents control two very important aspects of their children's lives that are instrumental in their development. Parental control over the education and the social lives of their children creates children who do not have what is needed in order to make moral decisions. These children's capabilities or lack there-of, as a result of this parenting, make them unable to make the most moral decisions possible. This argument bridges the gap between psychological and moral development of children and how parenting affects this. By taking psychological research and applying it to ethics and morals, one can come away from this argument understanding how overprotective parenting not only inhibits the psychological growth of children, but of their moral development as well.
