I was on facebook and on my friend's was talking about a mother that left her 8 year old home alone. Someone commented and started talking about a movement called Free Range Kids. I had never heard of this term so I googled it. It was started by a mother that left her son in Bloomigdales and let her 9 year old son find his own way home on the subway, she left with him a map, a MetroCard, quarters for the phone and $20 for emergencies. Their suppose to be all about safety but not being over protective.
What's your opinion on Free Range Kids? Would you ever drop your 9 off and let them find there way home? If not what age would you believe to be more appropriate?
