My wife and I have been reflecting on an article we recently read in Newsweek magazine where the author said this:

It seems that we are up against a rising tide of scheduled childhoods born from a culture of fear.  No one…allows her young child to explore the woods, wander local neighborhoods or ride a bike across town without supervision…We have come to accept that it is our job to keep our children from harm at the expense of everything else.

What’s your reaction?  Read the rest of Jaime’s post and make a comment.
