New Video Condemns Helicopter Parents ‘Kids should be allowed to play outside’


Kids should be allowed to play outside: That’s the message in a video launched today from the website, The video condemns the idea that parents are being arrested for allowing their young children to play outside without supervision. The video, while well received, also caused many parents to react harshly, saying that “times have changed” and that “being a loving parent shouldn’t be an act which others condemn.” Debates between micro-style parenting and more hands off versions have raged on for the past few years as some “free range parents” have been arrested and had their children taken away.
