Parents today seem torn between two extreme parenting styles, and this tension is especially evident when it comes to summer schedules. On one end of the spectrum is the helicopter parent. This parent waits by the sidelines all day at soccer camp, armed with a water bottle, Neosporin, and clean clothes – just in case she is needed during the day. On the other end of the spectrum is the free-range parent. This parent would never enroll her child in an organized camp, but instead lets her children roam the neighborhood all day. That is, until they draw blood or catch something on fire.
