Free Range Kids, How to Raise Safe, Self Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry)

Lenore Skenazy


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 child?s 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.

A Parent's Comment About the Book

This book put my fears to rest, and I think has helped me become a better parent by relaxing enough to let my child flourish.
