Many parents think the world is a dangerous place, but it is much safer than they might think.

Other parents might try to push their beliefs on you so remain objective when other parents give you advice. Ask your kids what they are learning from other parents. Form relationships with parents who share similar values with you. Take time to educate yourself on ways to educate your children in a positive way.

Just remember that it will not be easy to give your kids the freedom they need but this is something that must be done.
