Drew Holden looks at new way that 'well-to-do American adults [have] become breathtakingly neurotic'

The Washington Free Beacon’s Drew Holden is very, very good at threads.

Usually, his threads involve holding the mainstream media and Democrats accountable for hypocrisy and bad/awful/stupid things they say. But recently he switched gears a little bit and did a thread on something that is just plain bad/awful/stupid: parental paranoia.

I hadn’t really been aware of this up until Holden tweeted about it, but apparently there are a lot of parents out there who have become extremely anti-sleepover. Washington Post feature writer Caitlin Gibson wrote a whole article about it, and Holden decided to take a closer look at just how ridiculous things have gotten out there:

After reading the article, I’ve gotta say that Drew Holden’s got a point.

It wasn’t enough to rob children of the school experience; now some parents want to rob them of the friend experience, too.

That’s because it is a preposterous way to think about it. Seriously, what the hell?

Because a generation of kids hasn’t been screwed up enough already. Good Lord.

Paranoia is a religion, too, if you think about it.

This is just another form of child abuse. Not all pain and scars are physical.

Both laughing and crying are acceptable responses to what you’ve just read. These poor kids deserve so much better.

Bad parenting comes in many different forms. At some point, you’ve got to let kids be kids. Otherwise, they’ll grow into paranoid psycho parents.
