When we look at our kids– and think of the responsibilities we had and risks we took at their ages– a lot of us think our kids are growing up more slowly. This is definitely not always a bad thing. But when our kid is playing Pokémon and their peers have moved on to Snapchat, should we be encouraging them to blossom? Or letting them stay young a little longer?

Amy and Margaret discuss:

  • why it's good to have "young" kids
  • when to rescue, and when to leave them alone
  • how to make our own homes safe havens for our kids to be exactly who they are
