When I Was a Kid, We Were All 'Free Range'

When I Was a Kid, We Were All 'Free Range'

I'm so relieved.  Maryland has clarified its policy on "free range" children.  Lawmakers there have decided that the state shouldn't investigate the parents of these children unless the children are harmed or face substantial risk of harm.  This policy clarification arose from a case where two "free range" children were twice picked up by the police and taken home.  Child Protective Services got involved, and the whole episode then went out of control.  These poor children, who were doing nothing other than being children, were held by CPS without being able to even see their parents for a period of time.
