As parents, we get apprehensive when we see very active children.
We are afraid they would fall and get hurt...
We fear of any untoward things...tears and pain...
Thus, we have the tendency to be over-protective!

BUT, if we curb their energies and experiences, would we also limit their learning?
I, personally, allow my child to find his own ride home... allow him to fall... and to fail!
Not because I don't care, but because I want him to be WISE.
If a child never felt the pain nor failure, he might not be able to handle this...
If a child never tried to be on his own, he might not be able to assess and deal with different kinds of people and situations...

We, as parents, still need to be there... but let us give them the chance to grow!
