This is a blog for the staff of "Notes from the Windowsill," to talk about children's books and what we're reading.

I liked Gary Paulsen’s, “Dull Butter Knife”. My son is currently reading the free range version. Come to think of it, the renamed one would be much shorter. "Then he died.
Heh.That somehow reminds me of the "Kids in the Hall" dull, spoon-collecting aliens. "Why don't they just have one that says 'Earth?' It would save time."
I laughed at "Oh, The Places You’ll Wish Your Parents Had Let You Go.” Cute idea. Interesting site. I had heard of the free-range parenting idea, but I never thought to look for a website. That actually shows how free-range I am - I don't even need a support system for my slacker parenting.
It is an interesting site. I have issue, as I've written here before, not so much with free-range parenting as with the idea that children are *invariably* overprotected. It's kind of like how feminism used to only describe the experience of middle-class white women. Lots of children are underprotected and I was one of them. But I am as free-range as I feel comfortable being, with an autistic child. My husband is a lot more overprotective.
