Family Matters: So what are parents to do? Cuddle, not coddle
The two words, cuddle and coddle, differ by only one small vowel but their meaning and application produce polar opposites when raising children.
To cuddle means to draw and hold close, to embrace affectionately, to interact, to teach and to play. Coddling means to cater to, to treat, to gratify with excessive indulgence, to pamper and to spoil. Believing that children can do no wrong; must not be held responsible for their actions; must not be upset or frustrated; must be free of demands, expectations, or responsibilities; and, given whatever they want are elements of coddling.
