Free Range Kids

Regular readers know what I think of so-called parenting experts. And, granted, there is something ironic about a parenting book attacking parenting books. But still, Free Range Kids, authored by the self-proclaimed "World's Worst Mom," sounds like a hoot. (Though granted, we in Israel already understand that pre-teens take public transportation on their own...) Her webiste claims that if, for some strange reason, you wanted to have your child abducted by strangers, you would have to leave him or her outside and unsupervised for... 750,000 years to make that statistically likely.

Shalom over there! It's "Free-Range" Lenore herself, a Jewish mother who DOES worry about her kids, but doesn't worry about the things TV tries to make us terrified about, like constant abductions. So thanks for the shout out! And laila tov! (It's midnight here.) -- L.
