i think what was said about today's parents always hovering around their kids has much to do with the fact that parents are usually older these days than say a generation or two ago. with age comes the realization of vulnerability, even mortality, both with respect to ourselves and our kids. for this reason, and also the fact that we typically spend less time with them than our parents did (because of full time work obligations of both parents) our children are more precious to us (we also tend to have fewer of them). i very much agree with the isolation argument, resulting in the loss of trust into our neighbors and fellow citizens.
