Why so many parents want to keep their children on a VERY TIGHT leash? Isn't childhood supposed


to be a time of exploration, letting go, and just BEING. Childhood should be the time of just exploring and sometimes going beyond the parameters, knowing that parents will be there to provide safety. However, many parents do not want their children to be children because to them, that is misbehaving. Also they are fearful if their children explore certain areas that are "forbidden" by their respective family construct. What is rebellion to many parents is a normative part of childhood and adolescent development.
