This webinar is designed to help parents understand where their anxiety about their kids comes from, and why they don’t let their kids do half the stuff they did (and loved doing!) growing up. Lenore will talk about ways to make it easy and normal to start loosening the reins so both generations – kids and parents – get more freedom.
Webinar: Brave parenting in a culture riddled with worry
27 November 2019 8:00pm AEDT
Lenore Skenazy is president of the new non-profit Let Grow, and founder of the Free-Range Kids movement. Ten years ago, after her column Why I Let My 9 Year Old Ride the Subway Alone landed her on every talk show from The Today Show to Dr. Phil, Skenazy founded the book and blog Free-Range Kids to say that kids are not in constant danger. Give them a little more freedom and everyone wins.
Lenore lectures internationally (Microsoft, DreamWorks, Sydney Opera House) and has been profiled everywhere from The New York Times to The New Yorker to The Daily Show.
A journalist herself, Lenore has written for everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Mad Magazine. A Yale grad, Lenore lives in New York City with her husband and beloved computer. Her sons have (safely) flown the coop.
