Overparenting Backfired

My thoughts align with this video on over parenting. I’m the dad at the park that sits as far away as possible reading a book really only paying attention to the 3-year-old. I’ve even had other parents chastise me for my very hands off approach.

I’m working hard to let my kids be out doing what they want without an adult, inside the societal constraints that often has other adult complaining to authorites when they don’t think I should be doing it.

Also, so many other adults need to just keep their opinions to themselves.
