In today's episode, host Marc Clair is joined by syndicated columnist, author of "Free-Range Kids, How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry)", a woman who has been referred to in the media as "America's Worst Mom", Lenore Skenazy! Ms. Skenazy explains why she raises her children as "free range kids", and why society in general seems to be trending towards overprotecting children, both in parenting methods and legislatively. Lenore and Marc discuss several appalling instances of overreaction to seemingly normal, childlike behavior in our public schools.
In the "Last Roar", Marc compares the current attitude towards children to that taken by government agencies such as the NSA and the TSA, and look at sort of roles children are pegged into today compared to the 19th century.
