- it’s okay for your children to climb up the slide
- It’s okay if they play with the mulch
- or sticks
- The puddle at the bottom of the slide? Have at it!
- Jumping off the swing won’t kill them.
- Falling down builds character.
- Ignore your brood. Go ahead! Really-
- Sit down, read a book, do a workout.
- Stop hovering.
- And Stop wondering who’s in charge of those unruly children- their mine- yes, all of them, no, I don’t have twins.
