I heard this woman, Lenore Skenazy, on NPR today pushing her book "Free Range Kids". She advocates letting children go unattended because the world really IS a safe place. I think she is dangerous. A world where 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused is NOT a safe place. Check out her website and decide for yourself.

"But now old friends are acting strange,
they shake their heads, they say I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day
....it's life's illusions I recall, I really don't know life at all. "Joni Mitchell
