I follow a blog called Free Range Kids at http://freerangekids.wordpress.com/. Free Range Kids is all about allowing children to be out exploring and dscovering their neighborhood and world. The blog also helps to dispell fears that the world is a scary place with statistics to back up that idea. I used to look for wildlife in the oil fields that backed up to my parents' house when I was a kid and encourage my children to have that same kind of freedom. When we all work together as neighbors and don't run around being fearful of evey other person...the world becomes a better place. I understand so much more about what provokes child molestors and predators than my parents did when I was a kid that it is easier to help my children be safe as they explore their neighborhood and world. As a community, everyone can make their neighborhoods welcoming to children and not homebound prisons.
