Free-Range Kids - Lenore Skenazy
For most of human history, parents believed a baby needed milk and a place to sleep, not, as many of us believe today, board books, soft books, story tapes, light-up rattles, and musical mobiles playing Mozart. Even Mozart didn't grow up hearing Mozart. (But his kids did, and whoever heard of them?)
For the record, my kids are pretty much free-range kids. I think Skenazy is bang on the money with most of what she says - the world is no where near as dangerous as the media makes it out to be. Raising kids to be scared of every little thing will lead to a generation that will not know how to assess risk - a very dangerous place to be indeed.
