Considering Free Range Parenting? Do the Benefits Outweigh the Risks!?


Considering Free Range Parenting? Do the Benefits Outweigh the Risks!?

The Parenting Junkie discusses free range parenting. What is free-range parenting? How are free range kids different from kids that grow up with helicopter parents? In this video you’ll learn why choosings to be a free range family is a great choice. When kids are allowed to be free-range kids the freedom and independence they gain allows them to grow into competent adults. In addition, research suggests that free range children grow up to be less anxious and depressed (who doesn’t want that?). In the book, How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims, she writes that she has met parents who would not allow their 17 year old daughter to take the subway.
