Are you the proud mom of a "Free Range Kid". Do you want your child to have the same freedom and unstructured childhood that you once did? Do you choose to instead raise an intelligent, confident, capable and happy child? Even if it means allowing them to make mistakes and take a few falls along the way? Do you long to bring back the days of coming home when the streetlights come on? Do you wish to make parenting decisions based on knowing your child's capabilities and personalities instead of based on the media and other parents fears? If you answered yes to any of these questions then guess what? You are raising a "Free Range Kid"!

I didn't even know I was considered a "free range parent" till stumbling onto an article. I live in the country and just do what feels right with my kids and that includes letting them play in the dirt in the fields.

I would love that. In our suberb the kids can't walk or play in the street during the day let alone in the evening. walking to the corner shop they have to walk past several gang members houses, children beat others up if they wear the wrong coloured clothing.
What can i do to help them not be afraid of the world? thats its not all bad.
