FIRST, A PLEA: IF YOU LOVED YOUR OWN “FREE-RANGE” CHILDHOOD AND WANT THAT FREEDOM GIVEN TO THE NEXT GENERATION, PLEASE DONATE TO LET GROW BY CLICKING HERE!
And now: Head over to Let Grow to read the whole list of parenting moments — good and awful. But let me just state my favorite one here, as it seems to encompass everything that is crazy in our culture:
A Beaverton, Oregon, man screamed at a lady for leaving her kid in the car while she ran into the grocery for two items. She was not only irresponsible, she was hurting others — like him! Here he was, minding his own business, stealing her car, when he noticed the baby in the backseat. So he had to turn around and bring the kid back. What a time suck!
On the upside, at least that gave the guy a chance to tell the mom what a lowlife she was before he sped off again — in her car.
