Idle parenting

I've just read this article in the Telegraph:

Idle parenting means happy children - Telegraph

I don't know about ditching the vacations and days out but other than that, I'm quite taken by this approach. I think my mother may have gone slightly too far along this path as she used to shove us out into the garden and lock the door too...
I will have to seek out "The Idler" magazine.

Great article, thanks for sharing! I agree with a lot of it. We here in the U.S. overschedule our children. My boys only play one sport a season and we encourge lots of free play.

I see you like writing from your profile. I have a writing challenge on my blog right now. It's to write a six word memoir based on Hemingway's. Check it out!
