Parenting tips from a teen who grew up going to festivals with her offbeat mama

http://offbeatmama.com/2010/12/festival-with-kid

Among my peers it is rare to find child-parent relationships with total-honesty policies, where the child is given much more self-responsibility than in the majority of child-parent relationships and the parents aren't afraid to speak openly of how life is equal parts pain and pleasure.
It's not often you'll find a mother who, when their child reaches the volatile and nutty teenage years, will sit a child down and say, "Look, I know you're going to be experimenting with drugs soon. That's fine — I only ask that you try whatever drug you want to try with me first, so we can make sure you have a good experience and are in a safe place and I can take care of you."
