Mrs. Nutley has her work cut out and placed before her, doesn’t she?

Shepherd her five young’uns around this lunacy and hope they’ll discover a reason to go outside and play, while never seeing the kind of thing that haunts her darkest fear- something that might injure one of the li’l angels.

There’s Tiger Moms, Overprotective Moms, Helicopter Parents, Snowplow Parenting… but what about simple “I put a lot of time and energy into these people I love and I don’t want ’em getting smooshed out there in the big bad world” Parenting?

Or are those all variations on the same thing?
