I am easily one of the five most beloved boardies of all time. Don't be ridiculous.

Dude, you're the resident gay guy here. YOU'RE the most beloved person on the board. The only way you could possibly be more loved on this board is if you were addiitionally dark skinned and Muslim.

Plus, you're funny as hell.

Free range parenting is one of the dumbest terms of this millennium. 

Is that your comment on the term or the ideas themselves? If the former, do you have a better name? If the latter, why?

I myself don't care one way or another beyond what i already stated, just interested in hearing opinions.
The term.  The concept is fine. But saying free range makes me think of cattle. I think kids should be able to walk to the neighborhood park.

I see your point. Adult supervision is needed to ensure the kids don't stop by Ben's Chili Bowl and eat something that turns them into a hamplanet.

depends on the kid, the distance and the park itself(is it the kind of park frequented by junkies?)
but I think 9 is old enough to go to the local park with friends
I do think the buddy system is always a good layer of security

I might go as low as 11 or 12. I think by fifth grade she'll be old enough to walk the few blocks home after school on her own . No need to walk t oa park, since she can play on the playground at her school.


At age 9, I think I can provide a better security system than her buddies.

Living in the suburbs, I'm more worried about sexual predators than junkies. They're more of them, and they're more likely interested in her than a junkie would be.

My parents had me walking ~0.5 miles to and from school every day in 2nd grade. I turned out fine. No one diddled me. When people ask me to show them on a doll where I was touched, I tell them nowhere, because I wasn't.
