Lenore Skenazy: Free Range Kids

Listen to Lenore Skenazy: Free Range Kids

Everyone has an opinion when it comes to questions of parenting. Our Sunday newspapers seem to report on little else. New York journalist, Lenore Skenazy tells how she was labelled ‘America’s Worst Mom’ after she let her nine-year old son ride the subway home and how she fought back in the midst of a media maelstrom, by starting the movement for ‘free range kids’.
