Letting go of Hyperparenting

I just read this article today and had to share it with you all. It is an important message which I believe should be heard. Many parents have tendencies to "over do it" with their children. As a parent myself, it is easy to get caught up in the everyday "mommyworld" of comparisons. I think many children are not allowed to really, truly enjoy their childhood and BE children.

I found this article really put it all into perspective, How to let go of Hyperparenting and learning to relax with your kids.

I agree. I wrote a book about slowing down in our fast-paced world, and a big area of trouble comes from the hyper-parenting mindset. There are other ways the world seeks to speed up our kids, but we do a lot ourselves as the parents. Thanks for pointing people to the article!
