To feed another with a spoon.
To treat another in a way that discourages independent thought or action, as by overindulgence.
To provide knowledge or information in an oversimplified way.
There’s a reason why the phrase “spoon-feed” is usually derogatory. Let’s face it, spoon-feeding is not the most fun thing in the world. Maybe some people enjoy it. I am not one of them.
It makes a mess.
It takes forever.
It is so much more convenient to just stick him on me.
