Kendra Wilkinson believes parents are too overprotective.

Former Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson is opening up about a lot in her new book “Being Kendra,” including the fact that she believes parents are way too overprotective on their children today. And she will do everything to make sure her son, Hank Baskett, grows up to be very independent.

“I don’t know if it’s me or society, but it seems like parents are more protective of their kids than ever,” she writes. “Not me; I’m all about little Hank Jr. falling down and knowing what it is to hurt. I want him to be tough… He deserves to learn for himself what it’s like to fall or get a scratch.”

And if little Hank falls down and cries, she’s not quick to run to his aid. ”We want him to gain a sense of independence and not always look to us for help,” she writes. “I don’t want him to think that we are always looking over his shoulder spying on him or that we’ll always be there when he falls.”

And in lieu of this news, we put together a list of 10 celebrity parents we think are way overprotective when it comes to raising their children. Look below to find out who made the list!
