I always thought I’d be this super-active parent, enrolling my kids in every single activity there is to help them explore the world. Well, guess what? I am not that parent. I figured this lifestyle stresses us all, and it is better to take it easy and let them take it easy. If you’re always running around and focusing on too many things at the same time, it doesn’t really teach our kids much except that stress is inevitable. My kids spend a lot of time doing nothing productive (by societal standards) on some days, and we all benefit from it. I hope so, at least.
