    Yeah! Like maybe 'nurturing' is a better word or something?

    That's the best I could find. Actually looked up "coddling" in the thesaurus, and there aren't many options without the same effect.

    I think these days, and especially with regard to the millennial generation that there may have been far too much coddling.

    That being said everyone likes being treated every now and then.

    Oooh...now see that's different! I am all for spoiling!

    I especially want to give treats/food and see to their physical comfort.

    Thanks for going there An old but still interesting article on "Coddled/Entitled Millennials" as it pertains to the work environment from The WSJ "The 'Trophy Kids' Go to Work" ~ http://<br /> <br /> http://online...55219391652725

    On a personal note I don't like the word coddle for the purposes of describing "caretaking". Coddle seems like a word I'd use instead of baby sit and I think it denotes naivety and someone who needs assistance.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

    I think anyone that says they don't like being coddled is lying. There are times in our life where we needed it, and it feels good. When we're completely beat up and beat down, gentleness is required. Of course there are many ways for coddling to be done.

    I can really enjoy it. It can make things much easier and require a lot less effort. But too much of anything is bad so I largely push it away.

    Being coddled, yes. Being smothered, hell no. Being condescended to, never.

    I love that too. Even the little things can lift your mood or theirs. Having coffee made when I come downstairs in the morning, ah, so appreciated. Feels like love to me!

    That brings up something that's important to me though. Not everyone is the type to appreciate such things and, instead, take them for granted, or worse, expect them. Doing such things then? Not a good feeling, but when it's appreciated, it's the best.
