I am a free range parent, I always have been. My kids had discipline and were taught strict manners so they could function in society. But were always able to make decisions about what they wanted to do and who they did it with. I have spoken out about this topic several times. Interesting article on the suspected long term harm of helicopter parenting. 
Excerpted from How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success by Julie Lythcott-Haims, out now from Henry Holt and Co. Academically overbearing parents are doing great harm. So says Bill Deresiewicz in his groundbreaking 2014 manifesto Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of...

my goal is for Kayleigh to grow up and be able to move out after college.  and not have to move back in. 
I can sympathize to a small degree with helicpotering in that it is scary to let your kid fail at something.  It is scary to see them get hurt.  BUT it is amazing to see that kid bounce back, dust the dirt from their knees, and try again.  Raising K isn't about being in MY comfort zone.  (she broke that at 2 when she insisted on climbing the Big Kid jungle gym at the park) 
It is sad that this generation of over-parented kids is going to suffer so badly.

Got Cele out with me on the trails again yesterday. Nice easy 3.5 mile hike with very little elevation. We had cloud cover and a cool breeze along with a bit of thunder to add some drama to the morning. Hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend! #hikinglife   #healthierme   #sisters   #teamcelestine

Smart kid, stupid fucking teacher. #homeschooling 
How awful of a teacher do you have to be to tell a child there’s something wrong with him because he’s an atheist?Earlier this year at Forest Park Elementary School in Fort Wayne, India...

+Sabrina Benton , this lady's name is Bree.  She drove from Raleigh,  took the flag down, and the Good Ole Boys put it right back up "and no further damage was done."  I'm ready for South Carolina to turn back into Georgia.

We were the fast and the furious this morning! Driven by a lot of adrenaline I kicked up the pace and we did our 4.85 mile loop in record time, literally for this group. Have a happy Saturday!!

When I was in Jersey I spent a lot of time with my very good friend, Jess. One thing we did was stop in to see her nephew Anthony, who is also one of my son's best friends since, well birth. It is bitter sweet spending time with Anthony as he struggles with addiction and adult problems. But I will always see the potential in him and the sweetness under his problems. He greeted me with a big all encompassing hug and he just hung on for one of those genuine moments of connection between people. It is so very hard to watch his struggle and how it affects the people around him. I got a message this morning that he is in the hospital, it is just very sad for all of us but especially his family.   #loveislove   #unconditionallove   #addictionisadisease  

PS - I know this is a terrible picture, sigh.

Good luck Anthony. Just remember, it's all spiritual. She nailed it. Its all about the demons. Once he realizes this, substance abuse is easy to kick.
