    This line is something I think about all the time:

    We already entrust him with a good deal of responsibility and work around our property, but maybe we’re choosing the freedoms that feel safest to us.

    because I have a feeling I do that in my parenting, and I need to let go of them a little more. My parents made it almost impossible for me to “fail,” and I always said I wouldn’t do that with my kids.

    Pretty much ditto the previous comment. Completely convicting and simultaneously encouraging. I cannot wait to move my boys out of the suburbs. My biggest reason is to have more to work on as a family- a garden, chickens, etc. Way too much screen time in our house.
