ARMONK, N.Y. -- Lenore Skenazy, author of the parenting book "Free-Range Kids" will be speaking at H.C. Crittenden Middle School on Tuesday, June 14.

The talk is sponsored by the Byram Hills PTSA, which announced Skenazy's visit.

"A lot of parents today, Skenazy says, see no difference between letting their kids walk to school and letting them walk through a firing range," the event-preview announcement states. "Any risk is seen as too much risk. But if you try to prevent every possible danger or difficulty in your child’s everyday life, that child never gets a chance to grow up."

In "Free-Range Kids," Skenazy writes about allowing her 9-year-old child to ride alone on the New York City subway, the preview notes.

"Parent groups argued about it, bloggers, blogged, spouses became uncivil with each other, and the media jumped all over it."

Skenazy's talk will start at 7 p.m. and last until 8:30 p.m., the announcement adds.
