Roots and wings

Posted Aug 26 2008 11:05am

The sport of chiding parents for being too involved with their their children annoys me. The snide undertone to all the "enmeshment" and "helicopter parenting" talk is really: "you're limiting your child's independence."

Nonsense. This let-them-go sensibility is peculiarly modern and flies in the face of human social history. Strong families and familial connections are a good thing.

But it never hurts to be reminded:

"Close Families Raise More Independent Adults"

(thank you, Chris, for sharing this link!)
