Are you a Free-Range Parent? Do you ever ..let your kid ride a bike to the library? Walk alone to school? Take a bus, solo? Or are you thinking about it? If so, you are raising a Free Range Kid! At Free Range, we believe in safe kids. We believe in helmets, car seats and safety belts. We do NOT believe that every time school age children go outside, they need a security detail. Most of us grew up Free Range and lived to tell the tale. Our kids deserve no less. This site dedicated to sane parenting. Share your stories, tell your tips and maybe one day I will try to collect them in a book. Meantime, let's try to help our kids embrace life! (And maybe even clear the table.) Free-Range Kids by Lenore Skenazy ~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~ As near as I can tell from reading parts of the afore mentioned blog and watching a repeat on Dr. Phil today; Free-Range Parents in the 1970's were just called parents. :irked: I'll bore you with the stories of 'when I was a kid' later in this thread. :biggrin1: I am more curious to see how people, with young children are raising them.
