Helicopter and “free-range” parents are clashing over how kids should be raised.

Jan 23 2015

Helicopter and “free-range” parents are clashing over how kids should be raised. This December in Maryland, authorities received a call when 10-year-old and 6-year-old siblings were seen walking home alone from a park, and that family is now dealing with child protective services. However, free-range parents feel that freedom teaches independence. This debate is a continuing one: Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids, experienced a similar backlash to her parenting style and explores these issues in her show World's Worst Mom, which premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on Discovery Life Channel. (Washington PostNYTimes)
