Mollycoddling means to shelter and coddle kids in the same way a molly-cat coddles her kittens.

Just like "Tom" is the name for an intact male cat, "Molly" is the term for a mother cat. If you have ever seen the way a mother cat coddles her kittens, snatching them up by the scruff of the neck whenever there is any hint of danger, then you have seen 'mollycoddling' in action.
1) Hey! You're coddling those kids like a molly! Stop mollycoddling those kids or they will grow up worthless and pathetic!

2) The propensity for modern parents to mollycoddle their children in the 21st Century will inevitably lead to adults in 30 years who do not know how to cope with the real world.

A weak guy/girl. A mollycoddle keeps on telling the world that they are strong, or that the group they're a part of is strong, to the point that most other people would be considered braggarts if they did the same thing.
The mollycoddle talks about being strong, but never tells you about backstabbing people that knew him/her, whining about not getting something he/she were sure they deserved, or the world he/she retreats and hides from when he/she considers it scary.
