Lenore Skenazy, formerly dubbed as ‘American’s Worst Mom’, uses her platform to share her experience with her ‘free range’ kids. Of course she shares safety tips as well (don’t want any kids getting lost or in trouble), but she believes that not being a helicopter parent and letting your kids have more freedom will actually be beneficial for them.
Her blog eventually grew into a non-profit and she teamed up with research psychologist Dr. Peter Gray and New York University professor Jonathan Haidt to promote the idea that giving your kids a little more freedom won’t be the worst thing you’ve ever done.
