Free Range Parenting

Postby Zarniwoop » Fri Apr 13, 2018 8:13 am

Anyone reading these stories about this movement?

It seems that parents have been getting arrested and/or fined for stuff like letting their kids play outside by themselves or letting them walk home from school or parks by themselves. And now some parents are pushing back.

Utah just passed a law that gives parents more freedom to make these choices.

The thread title sounds like what pasture your having them graze on.

Yes - Letting kids walk to parks and play unsupervised has led to arrests and fines

This is so damn stupid. I hate that I'm not really very surprised though.

Any guesses on which political ideology is supporting these laws?

Extreme left progressives. Just like extreme right conservatives support idiotic, often racist ideals.

This is a stupid issue, not an ideology issue.

I've heard of stories of parents being reported if their child/children are alone in their own front yard! Geez let kids be kids!

I did know about these laws and I could be wrong but I think it's to make someone accountable for kidnappings and over all welfare of the child such as deaths in car, vans etc. there is also a new law in Texas that a child has to be reported missing within a hour and 30 minutes time window due to the little girl who's adopted father caused her death then dumped her body in a ditch but didn't report her missing until hours later.

Ya but nobody’s trying to pass laws that make racism easier. Just saying.


This type of dumb **** has been seeping into our schools and shoved down society’s throat by the liberal establishment for some time now.

Their thinking is actually not so fringe, and is what got Trump elected...



(Oh, and the Russians of course.)
