"Enabling" Undermines Responsibility in Students.
Landfried, Steven E.
Educational Leadership, v47 n3 p79-83 Nov 1989
Teachers who regularly "enable" or rescue students are inadvertently reinforcing irresponsible behaviors that undermine students' self-esteem. This article discusses how and why "enabling" occurs in schools, how it affects students, and how "codependent" adults can minimize behaviors allowing students to avoid responsibilities and opportunities for growth. Includes 10 references. (MLH)
