There’s a fine line between caring about your kids and their behavior and over-parenting. These days, it seems easy to over-parent with the media’s focus on danger and their constant perpetuation of fear. However, sometimes our kids just need to play and learn their own lessons. I know, dear Helicopter Parents, it’s hard to hear. But I’m giving you permission to actually look at your book or phone for at least 2 minutes at a time while your kids are playing in the sand… your kids will be fine.
