Free-range parenting

Parents have made news recently after being detained for purposefully leaving children on their own, prompting renewed debate about so-called “free-range parenting.”

Moms and dads who practice this parenting style say it promotes independent, even fearless kids. But what is considered free-range by some can look like neglect to others.

If you have strong opinions about this issue and/or practice free-range parenting, please email me at gstaples@ajc.com or call me. I can be reached at 770-263-3621.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
