A sensible parent

/ 14 April 2008

I once got in trouble for sending Nathaniel to the gas station down the block for candy. I remember going three blocks away for candy when I was a kid. Is today so much more dangerous or are we more afraid? I was proud of this parent, I think she’s right. Kids need chances to express their independence. My fear is that if we don’t give them reasonable venues to be independent, they will find unreasonable ones.
