"When I Was a Kid, We Were All 'Free Range'"
Is it any wonder that we are becoming more of a "nanny state"...
At AmericanThinker.com, Claire Hawks writes about how times have changed:
"I'm not sure who came up with the name 'free range children.' The only thing I ever knew that was 'free range' until recently was chicken, not children. Now it's the term used for children who are allowed to have a degree of independence by their parents. When I was a child, we were all 'free range.'
Our parents allowed us more and more independence the older we got based on how well we handled the responsibility."
