Why does an over-protective mom lead to anxiety in her children?

Over-protective moms want to protect their children from harm, injury, pain, misfortune, bad experience, rejection, hurtful feelings, failure, and disappointment.

These moms' goal is to protect their children without jeopardizing their well-being.

And the overprotected children ultimately become a failure in their life in many ways.
