So apparently there is a parenting style called “free range parenting”. I haven’t really read too much about it but have heard the term thrown around. Evidently, it is a throw back to the 70s and 80s when kids growing up didn’t always have an adult scrutinizing their every movement. I just wanted to assure you all the free range parenting is alive and well at my house. Assorted commitments have me out of the house quite a few evenings this week. My solution is to leave the kids car keys and cash.
The 11 year old was already responsible and organized. The 16 year old is getting there.
