I realize that sounds kinda nuts — why are we asking PARENTS to show us their KIDS being independent? Who, after all, is better at making videos? Mom or little Ava (who’s 5)?
But legally we can’t ask anyone under 13 to do anything. So go document your children doing something new on their own, thanks to scads of quarantine time, and enter the short video here — like, literally by clicking here — at the Let Grow Independence Challenge! Deadline is Sunday night, April 26. First prize is $500!
