Anyway, for weeks my boy had been begging for me to please leave him somewhere, anywhere, and let him try to figure out how to get home on his own. And no, I didn’t trail him, like a mommy private eye.
So on that sunny Sunday I gave him a subway map, a Metro Card, a bill, and several quarters, just in case he had to make a call. I trusted him to figure out that he should take the Lexington Avenue subway down, and the 34th Street crosstown bus home.
If he couldn’t do that, I trusted him to ask a stranger.
And then I even trusted that stranger not to think, “Gee, I was about to catch my train home, but now I think I’ll abduct this adorable child instead.”Long story longer, and analyzed, to boot: Half the people I’ve told this episode to now want to turn me in for child abuse.
As if keeping kids under lock and key and helmet and cell phone and nanny and surveillance is the right way to rear kids. It’s debilitating — for us and for them.“Carlie Brucia — I don’t know if you’re familiar with that case or not, but she was in Florida and she did a cut-through about a mile from her house …
and midday, at 11 in the morning, she was abducted by a guy who violated her several times, killed her, and left her behind a church.”That’s the story that the head of safetynet4kids.com, Katharine Francis, immediately told me when I asked her what she thought of my son getting around on his own. We all know that story — and the one about the Mormon girl in Utah and the one about the little girl in Spain — and because we do, we all run those tapes in our heads when we think of leaving our kids on their own. These days, when a kid dies, the world — i.e., cable TV — blames the parents. And yet, Trevor Butterworth, a spokesman for the research center STATS.org, said, “The statistics show that this is an incredibly rare event, and you can’t protect people from very rare events.
She runs a company that makes wallet-sized copies of a child’s photo and fingerprints, just in case. It would be like trying to create a shield against being struck by lightning.”“Parents are in the grip of anxiety and when you’re anxious, you’re totally warped,” the author of “A Nation of Wimps,” Hara Estroff Marano, said.
We become so bent out of shape over something as simple as letting your children out of sight on the playground that it starts seeming on par with letting them play on the railroad tracks at night.
I don’t consider myself so much a Travel Agent, but a True Travel Counselor.
I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling and apply it to each and every client I work with to create a personalized vacation experience that is a perfect fit for their wants and needs.
I spent over 10 years in the counseling field and realized I needed a more flexible career in order to better suit my transient military family’s needs.
I’ve traveled extensively from my Destination Wedding at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida, spending time Down Under, cruising rivers and seas to living in Japan and traveling in Asia so becoming a Magic Maker® was a great transition for me.
I've experienced Walt Disney World® Resort both on a tight budget - utilizing military discounts, staying at value resorts and buying Florida resident passes as well as in luxury, staying club level at a Deluxe Resort for our Walt Disney World® Resort wedding!
I've traveled adults only, with an infant, with a toddler and in large groups.
