so, yesterday i heard someone mention "free range parenting" and i'm a bit confused. what is it? my husband I were talking about it last night and he said it sounds like a crock. granted my husband and I are both what most parents consider strict. i dont think i am lol i just have my set ways as he also does. example: beds better be made before you come down in the morning, pick up after yourself, better use your manners, you eat what i make, im the parent so therefore no arguing, homework done as soon as you get home, bedtime is 8:30 pm no matter what (except holidays & when we are visiting family), and do not touch or ask for anything in a store at all. there are more thats just a few lol. but free range sounds to me as if the kids rule the roost.
