A national debate on the nature and limits of childhood is currently underfoot, and as only one of us has children we decided to weigh in. We mentioned a number of articles on the show. For an overview of the Maryland case, read this. Megan McArdle provides a handy list of seven reasons we hate free range parenting, and Michael Lewis takes on what happens to children when they don’t play. Finally, Michael Brendan Dougherty examines why we can’t be free range kids anymore.
Finally: Thank you again to everyone who has given so generously to us. New equipment is in the mail, so we’ll start using it here soon. We are so grateful for the enormous kindness many of you have shown to us.
