I’m not referring to either of the recent Atlantic Monthly articles that seem to have opposite conclusions: Hanna Rosen’s Hey! Parents, Leave Those Kids Alone or Alfie Kohn’s The Over-Protected Kid.

I’m referring to a short New Yorker article entitled New Parenting Study Released with this opening paragraph:

A recent study has shown that if American parents read one more long-form think piece about parenting they will go fucking ape shit.

 Read it through yourself, being sure to get to the last couple of paragraphs.
