Bubble Wrapped Kids

March 11, 2014 permalink

Lenore Skenazy, founder of Free Range Kids, spoke at the Cato Institute on March 6. Here is a local copy of her talk (mp3). The problems of family law do not begin with legislators or social workers, but with an over-protective culture that shields children from any risk, no matter how small. In doing so, it prevents children from learning self-sufficency and encourages busybody interference in the relationship of parents and children.
