I think you all might enjoy--or @ least be intrigued by--this article in today's NYTimes Magazine, "The Anti-Helicopter Parent’s Plea: Let Kids Play!"-- It's about a Silicon Valley dad who "decided to test his theories about parenting by turning his yard into a playground where children can take physical risks without supervision. Not all of his neighbors were thrilled." (Kat, you'll be interested to see that the journalist writing the article evokes Lord of the Flies!)
