December 2, 2012: Less-Is-More Parenting and Kids-in-Charge Teaching

Do you have helicopter parents? We hear from a mom who tells parents to quit hovering and let their kids grow up. Vicki Hoefle‘s book is titled Duct Tape Parenting: A Less Is More Approach to Raising Respectful, Responsible, and Resilient Kids.

Plus: Ledyard Charter School is a high school in Lebanon, New Hampshire, where students have individual learning plans and take the lead at parent-teacher conferences. Our contributor Naomi Elias caught up with Lynne Grigelevich, executive director of the school.

Web exclusive: Vicki Hoefle tells us what she thinks about the magical and practical parenting solutions of the children’s book character Mrs. Piggle Wiggle.
