Free-Range Kids' Lenore Skenazy: "Kids are over-parented and here's the answer"
6 days ago
For the past 10 years Free-Range Kids' Lenore Skenazy, New York City journalist and mom of two, has been taking one for the team. The Free-Range Kids author and blog founder has been on a one-woman mission to give kids back the freedom and autonomy they need to grow into self-actualized adults. I can't get enough of every single thing she has to say, including stats like: Crime is back to the level it was when gas cost 29 cents a gallon, says the Christian Science Monitor. Crime is back to the level it was before color TV, says The Week magazine. 2013 gun crime rate back to level of early 1960s, says Pew Study. 2014 violent crime rate down another4.4%, says USA Today. Pedestrian, bicyclist and car deaths ALSO at lowest rate in decades, says The Council on Foreign Relations. And here’s an overall report on crime over the last 25 years, which includes the graph below: Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law School All violent crime in the U.S.: Down 48% 1993 – 2012 All homicides: Down 50.5% 1993-2012 Forcible rape: Down 34.5% 1993 – 2012 Violence Against Children 2-17 is going down too (and not just because we are helicoptering. Crime is down grown men and women too, and we don’t helicopter them): Physical Assault: down 33% 2003 – 2011 Rape, attempted or completed: down 43% 2003

I'm a struggling single mom of 4, desperately looking for encouragement and support. I truly believe the single working moms are the forgotten silent and suffering members of society. Yes, completely ignored by society including the women's movement! What a slap in the face that is!! When I was going through a horrid divorce I reached out to N.O.W. and they had absolutely nothing to offer as far as support. They added my name to their mailing list and all I got was political newsletters... thanks, but no thanks.
I do enjoy listening to podcasts and turned to this as a possible source of encouragement. The episode I heard was in relation to alimony and child support. It was stated in relation to alimony and child support that we need to suffer as good feminists for the cause of our future generations. SERIOUSLY?!?! The fact is that the family court system is a sexist corrupt system that exploits women and children. Period!! I am just so offended by the ignorance of this idea that I had to break my silence and speak for the overworked, stressed and oppressed single mothers. Sadly, they won't find encouragement here.
