Should You Try Free-Range Parenting Your Daughter?

Remember the days when you spent hours in the summer building tree houses with the neighbors and ran around the backyard catching fireflies? These types of “free-range” activities are sadly experienced less and less by today’s youth.  

The term “Free-Range Parenting” refers to creating time and space for your girl’s exploration and learning without “hovering.” 

At points in your girl’s development, it’s critical to allow her opportunities for free-range discovery. For example, if she has an interest in plants and nature, take her to a local botanical garden, letting her wonder and learn. If she has a heart for children in need, sign her up to volunteer at a nearby orphanage.  

Giving her free-range for discovery may be the key that unlocks her calling.
