Parental Anxiety

"We live in a strange new world.  Kids are safer than ever before, but parental anxiety is skyrocketing...
Parenting has become more complicated than it needs to be.  It used to be, as far as I can tell, that Christian parents basically tried to feed their kids, clothe them, teach them about Jesus, and keep them away from explosives.  Now our kids have to sleep on their back (no, wait, their tummies; no, never mind, their backs), while listening to Baby Mozart and surrounded by scenes of Starry, Starry Night.  They have to be in piano lessons before they are five and can't leave the car seat until they're about five foot six." - DeYoung, Crazy Busy, pp65, 67
