Webinar Recording: Brave parenting in a culture riddled with worry

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 growing up.

Hear from Lenore Skenazy, President of Let Grow, a non-profit promoting childhood independence and resilience, and founder of the Free-Range Kids movement. Lenore will talk about ways to make it easy and normal to start loosening the reins so both generations get more freedom. Key learning outcomes include:

  • Why treating our kids as physically and emotionally fragile is bad for their future
  • That your kids are not in constant danger
  • How independence impacts children
  • How to raise nimble problem solvers
  • Ideas to know how safe, smart and capable your kids can be

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.
