So now all of a sudden she is retreating from the parenting style in the article, the style you are in favor of. It seems she is not alone in retreating from that style. You really are following her example, aren't you.
I still stick by what I wrote. Her parenting is much better. The fact that she retreated a bit (allowing sleepovers, letting the younger sister drop violin in favor of tennis), but I bet she still expects a high level of academic achievement, as well as strong extra curricular activities, even if it's not of her choosing.

I still emphasize academic success over letting a child have too much freedom to "do their thing".
