Cathy and Todd discuss a New York Times article that makes a case for “free-range parenting”.  Why are we so fearful to let our kids roam free and have their own adventures, and do the statistics reinforce or dispute our fear? Parents have started calling the police when they see a child at the park unaccompanied – is this helpful or harmful to our way of living?

They also discuss how to talk and stay connected to your child when they make a decision that disappoints you.

The name of the article is The Case For Free Range Parenting by Clemens Wergin
