Blog Of The Now: Free-Range Kids

Posted by 5 on

Parenting is a constant tightrope walk between giving your kids the freedom to grow into well-rounded people and the security to protect them from a world that may very well do them harm. Author Lenore Skenazy recently published "Free-Range Kids," an unorthodox parenting manual that brings up a pretty good point - when we were children, our parents didn't freak out about danger around every corner. So why do modern parents keep kids under strict surveillance? Even suggesting that maybe parents should let their kids have a little more independence got Skenazy labeled "America's Worst Mom" by ABC News. Whether you agree with her central precepts or not, it's a fascinating blog with lots of interesting ideas for progressive parenting. Watch an interview with Lenore Skenazy here.
