ARMONK, N.Y. -- The Op-Ed columnist who was hailed by some and lambasted by others after she wrote about her decision to allow her 9-year-old to ride a New York City subway alone is scheduled to speak at H.C. Crittenden Middle School later this month.
Lenore Skenazy, author of "Free-Range Kids," is set to discuss how parents today can provide their children with the same freedoms enjoyed by children of previous generations. The free event is to be sponsored by the Byram Hills PTSA.
Among Skenazy's many parenting beliefs is the idea that the greatest risk while raising a child today is raising a child who is never allowed to encounter choice or independence.
