I sometimes think parents get overprotective and overreact to things but in all fairness, I live in a town of 3000 people.  I imagine in a city if things don't stick to schedule you might get upset.

Claudette Blythe's curator insight, April 6, 2015 9:00 PM
I had a conversation over the phone with my brother about his 10 and 7 year old daughters going out into the back yard to play. He'd made an interesting observation that his children don't go outside to play in the backyard like we did as children growing up. I thought about the comment and couldn't recall the last time that my own children had been out in our backyard to play. Surely, I'd allowed them? As a matter of fact I'm certain that I'd even encouraged them to do so. I just could put my finger on when that was. A more interesting question I asked myself was why had I stopped encouraging them to go out and play? FEAR! Even though I don't consider myself to be a helicopter parent, I'd fallen prey to the constant barrage of "possible dangers" that may or may not exist. What if they get bitten by a snake out on this Texas terrain? What if they fall out of a tree and break something? What if someone reports my children as free-rangers to Child Protective Services? (okay, that last question is a bit sarcastic, but a brutally honest reality in today's western society). These fears come at a price! Our children need to be able to explore their world, have adventures, and learn to be imaginative and creative. How do we accomplish this in our over-protective society? I'm sure that our parents worried if we were gone to the store to long or stayed out a little past dusk as teens. However, we were trusted with a little freedom at a time. Parents seemed to intuitively know that we needed independence to grow into mature, responsible adults. We as children had the opportunity to venture out a little at a time on our own and gradually progressed to more responsible adventures ....We began by getting to go out and play in the back yard.
