Free Range Kids

hogewash

Lenore Skenazy has a post over at City Lab about letting kids be kids. Outdoors. By themselves. Without adult helicopter parents.

Her article got me thinking about how my childhood would be next to impossible these days. PatrolsĀ of 11- and 12-year old boy scouts no longer go camping on their own. A kid with a BB gun would be hassled by the police today. Building the kind of model rockets we made would get a kid busted by the BATFE.

Is this progress?
