Brilliant book, and one that's sure to raise eyebrows from overprotective parents. Heather Shumaker isn't advocating for parental anarchy, no, she's simply making the case to allow kids to have more direct interaction with the world—bumps, bruises, hurt feelings and all. Kids are smarter and more resilient than we give them credit for, and it's crucial that they engage with real life as much as possible otherwise risk being ill-equipped to deal with the ever-changing chaos.

And bravo to Heather for unapologetically standing up to the tyranny of grade school homework and the parental signature. Both are lazy shams gone unchallenged for far too long. She's my new hero.
