Whoa, Momma!

Take your kids to the park -- and leave!



Kidsatplay I know how this is going to go, but I definitely think it's worthy of discussion. The founder of the  Free Range Kids blog wants to make May 22 a national  “Take Our Children to the Park … And Leave Them There Day,” and the reaction is already swift and hysterical.

Keep in mind she's talking about school-aged kids. Picking a day is kind of a stunt, but I think her point is to make parents at least visualize what it would look like to ease up and let their kids do something we did as kids. So,  take an 8 year old to the park and come back in half an hour. What's wrong with that? (*ducking for cover*)
