K..she seems way WAY delusional, however I do believe in free range kids. In this rural area, kids who don't roam-free end up with game controllers growing out of their hands.
I've equipped my son with "special protective abilities." (let your imagination run with that a bit), but he'll not be bothered. Daughter, a real explorer of nature and highly attuned to her surroundings. She knows everything that goes on around her at all times. She sees things the rest of us never recognize till she points them out.
Kids without fundamental survival skills and heightened awareness are sitting ducks.
where police threatened to arrest parents just for letting their children play alone in the front yard.
This is insane. I L O V E to encounter those cops.
