Who We Are

When Adults Step Back, Kids Step Up

At Let Grow, we believe today’s kids are smarter and stronger than our culture gives them credit for.

Treating them as physically and emotionally fragile is bad for their future — and ours.

Let Grow is making it easy, normal and legal to give kids the independence they need to grow into capable, confident, and happy adults.

School Programs

Want students to start doing and thinking more on their own? We’ve got independence-boosting projects, curricula and contests for kids K-12, and courses for teachers, too. Many are free!

Advocacy & Legislation

Kids have the right to some independence, and parents have the right to give it to them— without getting arrested. Here’s how we’re shifting the legal landscape, and how you can help.

Have Us Speak

Independence is childhood’s rocket fuel. We’re the experts on why it’s disappearing, what happens when it does, and how to bring it back. That’s why we’ve spoken everywhere from Microsoft to DreamWorks to schools and conferences across America. Next up: Your event?
