You have to see this to believe it. Lia Grippo, an outstanding early childhood educator and childcare provider is fighting to get her childcare license re-instated. The problem: Last summer, she allowed children to explore the beach and climb a beach cliff and the police were called. No one was injured or in danger - the kids were just exploring, part of Wild Roots Nature Education Program for children ages two to seven. This is unbelievable but indicative of a neurotic society where no one remembers what "normal" childhood is all about.
