Webinar Objectives:

  • Identify the three ways overindulgence occurs, with an example of each, and at least two risks associated with each.
  • List the four questions used to identify whether a specific behavior may be an overindulgence.
  • List three current cultural practices that contribute to overindulgence being the new normal.
  • Identify three behavioral clues that may indicate that an adult may have experienced childhood overindulgence
  • Identify three strategies for inviting adults to build resiliency in children or three ways to build their own resiliency if they were overindulged.


Since overindulgence comes from a good heart and since it has become a New Normal in the culture, it is easy to discount. However, it does exist, and it does present unexpected risks for adult life as well as major discomforts in the families of young children and teens. If it is missed in a assessment, it can cause problems as it bumbles along underneath, undermining the effectiveness of professionals working with families.

There are nine significant aspects of overindulgence. Attendees will have the opportunity to asses which of these nine will help individuals and families in their settings and how to help families create resilience instead of helplessness and irresponsibility.
