So, everyone probably heard about the mom who let her 9 year old ride the subway by himself... right?
And with two young girls kidnapped in my county, raped, and murdered by a sex-offender the whole "stranger-danger" thing has exploded here in California and is starting to spread nationwide.
What do you think about Free Range Kids? Is your child one? Do you think this mom is insane or do you think she's on the right path?
Are you more cautious with your bio-kids or your step-kids? I know I'm more likely to take chances, so to speak, with my BD than my SD because I am the be-all, end-all decision maker for my BD but for my SD I have to consider that I "answer" to her birthparents, and their rules are ultimately what I need to abide by.
On the link I provided, ironically, there is a man talking about young kids riding on the lift with him without their parents. I let my SD go ahead of me on the ski lifts and her biggest complaint? They didn't talk to her. LOL.
