Quotes About Protective Parents

And as for going into a bookstore and not finding a book suitable for your 13-year-old ... maybe you should do some research before you go in? And Im being serious here. There are a bunch of great blogs that will tell you the content of books. Reading Teen is one of them, and Ive seen others, and I love what they do because they make YA books feel safe to protective parents. There are plenty of YA books that celebrate joy and beauty. Now, I would argue that many of them are also the "dark" books to which the article refers, and that saying they arent suggests a pretty inattentive reader ... but thats neither here nor there. Im not trying to bicker with the careful parents. Im just saying: do some research and youll be surprised what you find. So, thats what Im going to say about it.

Childhood is perhaps the only phase of life when innocence can flourish. But to allow this, parents and others responsible for children's minds needs to construct a protective shelter against the painful and frightening facets of life. They need to stand guard at its door, to let the harsher truths of reality gradually unfold for the child, in a way and at a pace that allows the child to maintain a positive outlook.

My parents were kind of over protective people. Me and my sister had to play in the backyard all the time. They bought us bikes for Christmas but wouldn't let us ride in the street, we had to ride in the backyard. Another Christmas, my dad got me a basketball hoop and put it in the middle of the lawn! You can't dribble on grass.

— Jimmy Fallon

It's a tender and complicated dance, watching our parents age. We become protective in ways we never were before, and we study them with a mix of sadness and curiosity: Is this what we will be like when we are their age? We tell ourselves to be patient - just answer the same question again as if it wasn't answered a moment ago.

— Patti Davis

I think when you are an only child, parents are more protective and fearful because they've only got one of you. I was not allowed to do a lot of things that, if I'd been, say, number three, I would have.

— Rosamund Pike
