I have an 11 year old daughter and she hunts and fishes with me. She helps with the cooking too! Self suffiecient little girl!
Making kids self sufficient is what a parents job is all about. Doesn't sound like she was breast fed until she was 6 yrs old and doesn't sound like she sleeps in your bed for security. I mean you don't sound like the type who would carry her around on a sling close to your body at this age, do ya?
Oh I just got a big kick out is what's been in the news lately about helocopter parenting.
