Okay, when I first posted on free-range kids a few months back I thought it was trendy, hip, possibly short-lived but definitely worthy of a post. But it seems Leonore Skenazy, creater of Free Range Kids, is making headlines again – this time giving her 10-year-old ‘free range’ access to the Long Island Railroad. The conductor thought the boy was just a little too big for his britches and called in the cops – it’s all, however, within the letter of the law. But all’s well that ends well and Skenazy’s son was released by the police to again run free.
One author’s advice to another: I suggest that momma keep pushing the envelope right up to her book release. There’s no such thing as bad publicity – especially when your book is about ‘bad parents.’
