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. Interested in resources to help you learn the real risks of free range parenting? Checkout Let Grow (letgrow.org) founded by Lenore Senazy with resources such as the laws, groups interested in raising free range children, etc. Also, if you are looking for resources to help teach your children to be safe (ie teach about tricky people instead of stranger danger) checkout safely ever after founded by Pattie Fitzgerald.

What to do to become more trusting and free-range with your children:
