"FREE RANGE KIDS" has become a national movement, sparked bythe incredible response to Lenore Skenazy's piece about allowingher 9-year-old ride the subway alone in NYC. Parent groups arguedabout it, bloggers blogged and the media jumped all over it. Thisbook debunks dangerous myths and advocates rational care for safeand independent kids, using the Range Parenting Commandments,including: Know When to Worry (And Not) -- Playdates and AxeMurders: How to Tell the Difference Never Listen to Experts -- WhoSays You Are Doing Everything Wrong. Them. Who knows less than youdo about you and your kids. Them Eat Chocolate -- Give HalloweenBack to the Trick or Treaters. There's never been a single case ofa razor blade in an Apple in history. Never. Turn off the 24 HourNewsTURN OFF THE 24 HOUR NEWS -- Go Easy on "Law and Order" too.The inflammatory hysteria will make you crazy. Stop Thinking Like aLawyer -- Some aspects of normal life will not lead to litigation.Study History -- Your 10-year-old Would Have Been Forging HorseShoes (or at least delivering papers) Fail-- It's the New Succeed.How else are you going to learn. Listen to Your Kids -- They'resick of Being Babied (except the actual babies, of course) Listento Your Parents -- They raised you, right? And you're still alive.Relax-- Not every little thing you do impacts your child'sdevelopment, unless you smother or inspire rebellion A lot ofparents today, Skenazy says, see no difference between lettingtheir kids walk to school and letting them walk through a firingrange. Any risk is seen as too much risk. But if you try to preventevery possible danger or difficult in your child's everyday life,that child never gets a chance to grow up. We parents have torealize that the greatest risk of all just might be trying to raisea child who never encounters choice or independence. This bookstrikes a happy balance for safe and self-reliant kids who mustultimately live without us.
