A longer leash – a better relationship

Posted by Sandra on January 29, 2009

“That night, I ran into another mother. I told her my son had gone off to some party, and she said hers was spending the evening at the home of another family. The next day, my son told me her kid at been at the same party he was at. ”

And that says a lot. That is precisely why my teen also has a VERY long leash, and will have it until he falls off the honor roll (gush gush) or does something he knows is not right. He’s a great teen, and he doesn’t have to lie to me.

Free Range Kids is one of my favorite parenting blogs.  It’s always great writing, and those of you with the same informed laid back style as myself and millions of other parents should keep up with it! I love raising my kids EXACTLY the way I was raised (and I didn’t turn out *too* bad… ) and know they’re safe, happy, and getting a great experience in childhood that will teach them independence as an adult.
