Free range kids

Via BoingBoing[*1] , a link to a blog named Free Range Kids[*2] .

It has posts like Why I Let My 9-Year-Old Kid Ride The Subway Alone[*3] and Is Snow Going To Kill Your Kid[*4] ?

I like the concept.  I like it a lot.  Let kids be kids.

Perhaps we might even extend the concept to include adults, allowing them to make whatever choices they want as long as they’re harming no one else, and allowing them then to live with the results.  Just a thought.
