I have quite a few thoughts on the subject. In fact, I wrote a guest post on Jen and Barb Mom Life about this very subject.
I’m not sure there is really a difference between a protective parent and an overprotective parent. Most of us do everything in our power to protect our children, but I think some of us are more extreme than others. I personally never let my kids go out in the front yard without an adult to watch over them. I know others who don’t have a problem with this, and do not seem too worried about it.
Has the world changed as far as our children’s safety? Are we keeping our kids from being adventurous like we used to be as children?
I hope you’ll take a look at my post to hear the rest of my thoughts – and I’d love to hear yours too! Don’t forget to check out the video on Jen and Barb Mom Life too!
