Simple Kids Community Book Talk: Free-Range Kids

Today is the day for the first ever Simple Kids Book Talk!

I am so looking forward to hearing your thoughts and responses to Free-Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry by Lenore Skenazy.

Last week, I shared some starter questions to inspire your response to this book. If you would like to, you could answer any or all three of these questions:

a) Which passage or chapter did you find to be the most profound, informative, or eye-opening?
b) Were there passages/chapters with which you do not agree?  Why?
c) What impact has reading Free-Range Kids had on your parenting philosophies and choices?  Were you inspired to make any changes to your approach to parenting?  Did you feel affirmed in any of your parenting decisions?  Explain.

Or if you would rather, you can take another direction in your discussion.  If you are a blogger and have posted your response to Free-Range Kids, please leave a link to your post in the comments section.  If you are not a blogger or would prefer not to post your discussion on your blog, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!

Don’t forget that in order to encourage a spirit of community discussion, it would be wonderful if you could visit the discussion links posted before and after your own.

I am so looking forward to hearing your thoughts on both the book and the philosophy.
