One of the most enduringly popular articles on the Inquisition is an examination of the ever tighter curtailing of the freedoms afforded to modern children. As time passes, our children’s ability to explore, learn and grow is being impeded. Protective wrapping is smothering entire worlds, inhibiting development.
This, to be fair, is being done mostly by well-intentioned and over worried parents. But this is coming at a cost to their children. Parents are listening to, and reacting against media scaremongering, fearing dangers lurking everywhere.Kids’ freedom is being restricted.
But this over-protective stance which is harming children is being adopted by authorities in charge of schools, parks and other amenities available to children. These are not so well intentioned, being more likely to be inspired by fear, personal fear. They fear lawsuits and other repercussions. They fear angry parents. They fear children learning by their own, sometimes painful, mistakes.
