It feels almost like reading, “Thou art a wicked wench!”so archaic does this ietsazrktk
Facebook comment sound, at least to me. Â 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. Thatâ€™s my choice for my child. Heâ€™s six and Thank Goodness for Family restrooms because I donâ€™t trust a child going into the menâ€™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. Iâ€™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 donâ€™t doubt that her son has fun. Itâ€™s the idea that anyone who lets their kid walk to school or be independent does NOT prioritize their kidsâ€™ health and safety. We do.
Thatâ€™s why we let them go. – L
