When my son was a year old he had a serious health crisis. Because it happened when he was so young and because it was so serious, we babied him a lot and were very protective. Now he is 8 and won't do anything for himself. We dress him, bathe him, tie his shoes and when we try to ignite some excitement in him about growing up, he gets sad and cries. Any ideas?
