Intensive Parenting Poll


Consider us enlightened. In this week's survey, we asked you to weigh in the view that "intensive parenting," is stressing out parents and kids alike. Take a look: only 16% of you disagree outright, with nearly 85% of you either agreeing that we could stand to back off a bit, or admitting that you're not sure where you fall on this. We received too many insightful comments to share, but agree that as we evaluate our own parenting, we have to consider factors like electronics use, children with special needs, and how to incorporate our own interests in family time so it feels more fun. Thank you, as always, for sharing your wisdom with us!
