"It doesn't do them any favours if you make them little Buddhas. It certainly doesn't help them in school because they end up not understanding their responsibilities to other children."

to wait on hand and foot

To attend to every need, desire, and whim.

"Far too many children are waited on hand and foot. They don't make their beds or do the Hoovering," she said. "It doesn't do them any favours if you make them little Buddhas. It certainly doesn't help them in school because they end up not understanding their responsibilities to other children."

Hoovering = vacuuming
make them little Buddhas = to treat as if they were little gods
