I caught this article today and it really got me thinking.  Which mom am I?  I’d like to think I’m a happy medium though I’ve been saying for a long time that I really don’t think the world is any more dangerous today than it was 30 years ago.  And I will also say that while I was teaching I definitely noticed a trend in children not having any experience being responsible for themselves, whether it be for their actions or their actual physical well being.   That said, I’m glad my kids are little enough for me to put off thinking about for a bit.  Heh.
