Author and free-range kid expert Lenore Skenayzy joins to offer her parenting advice, especially in light of COVID-19. She answers questions like, “is there such a thing as free range parenting while we’re all stuck in the house?” She also gives us some tips on how to keep the kids occupied.
Lenore is the co-founder and president of Let Grow, a nonprofit promoting independence as a critical part of childhood.
