Mollycoddlers Annonymous is a blog where the mollycoddlers and mollycoddled alike can come to to find support, to commiserate, and to solve the problems of mollycoddling.
Mollycoddling is a dangerous form of love that usually backfires for most of the folks who try it. Yes, you want the best for your adult children and yes, you are willing to make sacrifices to get the best for your children including opening your home up to them.
We understand why you mollycoddle.
But in the end, the mollycoddled feels resentful and judgmental of the mollycoddler and the mollycoddler is used and abused past the points of comfort and that warm fuzzy feeling is long gone. Mollycoddling always escalates to the ‘I can’t take this anymore’ feelings. All you were doing was trying to be nice, but nothing is ever enough.
Stop that mollycoddling today and find a trade. Everyone gets an upgrade.
