I am a new mom and have recently been considering being more like the parents of Dharma from Dharma and Greg. Are there any other moms who parent by letting their kids learn and live on their own ways? Helping them to connect with themselves and others on deeper levels? Letting them experience lessons and pain and love and beauty, nature, spiritual whatnot, and so on? I am not looking to be bashed by those of you that are strict about rules, but I am looking for advice from those who have chose a free-er life.Answer Question

I'm not sure basing your parenting techniques on a sitcom is the best plan.
Kids need structure and guidance. You don't have to be super strict, but setting limits is what allows to children to develop and mature. If you ever meet any adults that were raised in a "freestyle" way you would see that they don't have the self control or determination to be self sufficient adults.
