Mothers with Wendy syndrome are overprotective and do not let their children grow. These children in the future are likely to become adults with Peter Pan syndrome.
Wendy’s syndrome in mothers is another way of describing the overprotective mother. Her name comes from the famous novel Peter Pan , written by James Matthew Barrie in 1904. In Barrie’s novel, Wendy’s character takes care of her siblings, lost children, and Peter Pan. She is the mother of all.
Wendy’s syndrome works in more or less the same way in mothers. The label applies both to the woman who becomes the mother of her partner, and to the mother who does not let her children bear any responsibility.
