Free-range Kids : How to Raise Safe, Self-reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry) Paperback
FREE RANGE KIDS has become a national movement, sparked bythe incredible response to Lenore Skenazy?s piece about allowingher 9-year-old ride the subway alone in NYC.
Parent groups arguedabout it, bloggers, blogged, spouses became uncivil with eachother, and the media jumped all over it.
A lot of parents today,Skenazy says, see no difference between letting their kids walk toschool and letting them walk through a firing range.
Any risk isseen as too much risk. But if you try to prevent every possibledanger or difficult in your child?s everyday life, that child nevergets a chance to grow up.
We parents have to realize that thegreatest risk of all just might be trying to raise a child whonever encounters choice or independence.
