Free-range parenting is the art of parents allowing their children to have freedom at a young age. Many parents in today’s generation have grown up in the 70’s and the 80’s. In this time period, children were able to travel on their own, walk to school on their own, and stay out late, too. Free-range parenting means parents would let their children experience this same lifestyle. Parents that agree to try this would let their children travel on their own on buses and the like.
