    that keep me from donning the jet pack.  I certainly can cop to being more hands on with my son than my parents were with me, but I have work diligently to help my son learn from new levels of independence as he shows readiness.  And, everytime I start to pull on the "cord", I think about him not being prepared when he REALLY IS on his own, and that is a much bigger freakout than the freedoms I give him now, after all, that is the biggest job of being a parent, getting them to be able to "fly" on their own.
