Our children are suffering under unreasonable restrictions and we should be concerned about their ability to function independently as adults. And maybe that’s the purpose — to retard the development of dependent children into independent adults so that children go seamlessly from dependence on parents to dependence on an all-powerful government. We should fight this in our own homes and seek to produce highly independent and therefore inherently American citizens.Over the top, perhaps. But as long as all the kids understand that when the street lights come on, it's time to come in, they ought otherwise be free to structure their own play. Perhaps that means parents limiting the scheduled activities (exercise class, sports practice, music lessons) to the weekends.
LET KIDS BE KIDS.
