Free Range kids


Some perspective from a parent and a kid « FreeRangeKids

Two letters here both well done IMO.

one fro ma 13 year old, begging for a little independence, as her friends father, plans to take off work, and follow, the class around on it's feild trip for four days to make sure nothing happens.

personally I think if you have that little trust, in the ability of the adults at your child's school, to protect said child. don't sign the permission slip, Perhaps transfer to another school. i mean really.

the second one is from a mother, illustrating that, well, Fate deals a crappy hand sometimes, and jsut cause you stay at home, under close wach of parent,s doesn't make you safe. so you mgiht as well be able to enjoy life.
