"[I]f you let your children make most of their own decisions (decisions that are not life-threatening, morally threatening, or unhealthy) before they reach puberty, they rarely take the quantum leap into serious rebellion in the teen years, because it's hard to rebel against one's own decision."She then describes letting her 11-year-old son have the barber shave one side of his head and put two stripes in it.
