They don't want every thing  to be done for them, but rather  they enjoy the guided help of an adult.

 

(1) everything = all; every thing = each thing

 

(2) to be -- you needed the rest of the verb (passive voice) to make this more clear.

 

(3) Comma before you start a new clause.

 

(4) Because the first clause if a bit long and can be confusing, it is a good idea to restate the subject, 'they'.
