The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Today’s kids are smarter and stronger than our culture gives them credit for. Kids need independence to learn the skills they’ll need as adults.  

After her column "Why I Let My 9 Year Old Ride the Subway Alone" created a media firestorm, Lenore Skenazy founded the book, blog and movement, “Free-Range Kids.” Today she is president of Let Grow, the nonprofit making it easy, normal and legal to give kids back some independence.
