It feels almost like reading, “Thou art a wicked wench!”so archaic does this ietsazrktk
Facebook comment sound, at least to me. Suddenly obsessive worry seems so over. Anyway, this was posted below a column of mine that ran in the Chicago Tribune:
Call me a Helicopter Mom all you want, but my child will never walk to school alone. That’s my choice for my child. He’s six and Thank Goodness for Family restrooms because I don’t trust a child going into the men’s public restroom alone either. There are bad people in this world and I am solely responsible for his well-being. Obviously, I cannot be there every second of the day, but I will be there when I can. 2015 is not the same as 1985. I’m sorry. Trust me, my child has plenty of fun and has the same experiences as others his age, but his health and safety are my priority.
I actually don’t doubt that her son has fun. It’s the idea that anyone who lets their kid walk to school or be independent does NOT prioritize their kids’ health and safety. We do.
That’s why we let them go. – L
