Here's a quote from Tim Elmore's book Artificial Maturity about the effects of over protecting and over rewarding our over exposed and over indulged kids:

There's no comfort in the growth zone, but there's no growth in the comfort zone. With the right perspective, failure and stress aid the growth process. (Chapter 5 - The Problem of Atrophy Kindle Edition ©2012 by Jossey-Bass)
