Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry

FREE RANGE KIDS has become a national movement,
sparked by the incredible response to Lenore Skenazys piece
about allowing her 9-year-old ride the subway alone in NYC.
Parent groups argued about it, bloggers, blogged, spouses
became uncivil with each other, and the media jumped all
over it. A lot of parents today, Skenazy says, see no
difference between letting their kids walk to school and
letting them walk through a firing range. Any risk is seen
as too much risk. But if you try to prevent every possible
danger or difficult in your childs everyday life, that child
never gets a chance to grow up. We parents have to realize
that the greatest risk of all just might be trying to raise
a child who never encounters choice or independence.
