    Where's the healthy boundary between trying to bring out the best in your kid, and going too far (helicopter-parenting, refusing to accept your kid's limitations, and/or making your kid need a decade of therapy post-college to get over you).

    My own parents were more laissez faire.  On the plus side, I never needed therapy and we're good relationally.  On the minus side, I sometimes wish they'd noticed I was finger-picking melodies on the basement piano at age 8, and steered me toward lessons with a good music teacher.
