These days, I see parents holding their childrens' hands out in public and the kids often look 8-12 years old.

I have no memory of my parents holding my hand, probably because they stopped doing that when I was around 4. Are parents today simply over-protective, are they trying to be best buddies with their kids, or what?

Have any of you noticed this?

Yes I've noticed that.

Please, I hold the hand of my 8 yr old niece when we're in a busy parking lot.

Look at all these pics of Lourdes and Madonna holding hands. Sometimes they're posing together on the red carpet, sometimes they're in casual situations.

I was 47 and my Mom grabbed my hand when we crossed a street...

It's a Mom thing.

I think it's part of the new touchy-feely culture, like a group photo with all the particpants leaning their heads in to form a giant U.
