Do you think we supervise our kids more than our parents supervised us as children? I KNOW I do, but things have just changed so much. I remember being outside playing alone all the time. My parents didn't want to play in the snow or leaves all the time like I did (you know, back when kids still wanted to play outside) and they would just let me go out and come back in when I got cold. My SO was raised the same way...come in when you're cold or bleeding or something, but otherwise, enjoy yourself.
I could NOT do that now. I worry that there are too many perverts out there...the world is just WAY too different. My SO has a tendency of not thinking about things like that and told me the today "oh, she's fine" until I pointed out how many sex offenders live around us.
Do you guys feel the same? Do you think it contributes to our kids not being outside as much as we were as kids?
