The Hyped Dangers Of Free-Range Parenting

The Hyped Dangers Of Free-Range Parenting

Recently, the better half and I have been wondering how much of a leash we should extend our seven-year-old child. She participates in a few adult-supervised extracurriculars within walking distance of our house, but can she can travel to and from these activities by herself? It’s not that she can’t be trusted to cross the street or otherwise be safe. As for our personal experience as parents, we grew up in towns in Colorado and Oregon where it would have been unthinkable not to let kids our daughter’s age roam on their own.
