I heard a term once--"judicious neglect". That encompasses both the purposefulness of leaving them to their own devices, and how you must try to resist putting your finger back in.
Not that I've ever been all that good at it. I think it really does help to have more than one kid. Two kids take about five times more energy than one. By the time you get to five kids, like GGG, the whole thing just becomes a rolling dustcloud of kid energy you just have to step back from and not let it knock over any houseplants.
