Do your kids have the opportunity to be independent? Many of us have become so fearful of the world around us, we have drastically limited our children’s ability to grow their independence. In this episode, I talk to Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids about her Let Grow Movement and why allowing our kids to explore their independence is so important for their development and self-esteem.
