“If you are not free to choose wrongly and irresponsibly, you are not free at all.” –Jacob Hornberger

[Constantly there are adding new restrictions for “our safety” or our children’s safety. While it may appear to be good because of increased safety, there’s decreased life experience and learning. Frankly I’m with Scotty’s mom from The Sandlot: “I want you to get out into the fresh air and make some friends. Run around, scrape your knees, get dirty. Climb trees, hop fences. Get into trouble, for crying out loud.” Screwing up was one of the greatest lessons children ever got and we’re screwing it up. –B]
