Letting children "live their lives" isn't about releasing them into the wild or abandoning them. It's about acknowledging that children aren't repositories for their parents' ambitions or projects for their parents to perfect. They are separate and capable, with their own tastes, pleasures, and experiences of the world.While giving kids independence isn't a novel idea, I don't often see it implemented by American parents. I recently met a couple who hasn't spent more than a few minutes away from their child in the 2 years since the little one was born. That doesn't seem healthy for the child nor the parents.
