Lenore Skenazy is president of the new non-profit Let Grow, and founder of the Free-Range Kids movement.

Ten years ago, after her column “Why I Let My 9 Year Old Ride the Subway Alone” landed her on every talk show from The Today Show to Dr. Phil,  Skenazy founded the book and blog “Free-Range Kids” to say that kids are NOT in constant danger. Give them a little more freedom and everyone wins.
