Super Nurturing or Over Protection?

Here is a very interesting piece written by Maggie Dent about how we are not allowing our children, especially our boys, to have some freedom and adventure in their childhoods.

I particularly like this line.

“I lay blame on society, which seems to have stolen boyhood in the name of a sanitised, politically correct, gender neutral, bland childhood.”

Read it.  I would be interested to read your thoughts.
