Have Lenore Skenazy Speak

By on

Read Time: 2 minutes

Let Grow President Lenore Skenazy has spoken everywhere from Microsoft to DreamWorks to Harvard Medical School, The Yale Child Study Center, and countless schools across the country. She founded The Free-Range Kids movement and wrote the book by that name. As serious as her message is, Lenore’s speech is hilarious. “One of the most useful and entertaining talks we’ve had in the 12 years I’ve been here,” is how a middle school principal described it. Audience members complain that their cheeks hurt from laughing so much.

Lenore’s feisty belief that our kids are safer and smarter than our culture gives them credit for has landed her on The Daily Show, Dr. Phil, The ViewThe Today Show, NPR, Good Morning America, Nightline, ABC World News TonightCBS Early Show, CNN, FoxNews, Anderson Cooper, the BBC, CTV, CBC — you get the idea. And she hosted the reality TV show, World’s Worst Mom.

A former journalist, Lenore has written for everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Mad Magazine. Yep. Mad. And she’s a graduate of Yale.

Some of her reviews:

Our audience literally did not want to leave.” Katharine Carol, Director of the International Children’s Festival, Vancouver

Lenore had the crowd eating out of her hand!” – Amy Draves, visiting speaker manager, Microsoft Headquarters

She points out how our obsession to protect our kids from any possible risk ends up denying them the freedom they require to grow into happy, confident, mature human beings. In spite of the serious topic, her presentation at DreamWorks was by far the funniest I’ve seen in a long time. ” – Claire Morrisey, Story Artist, DreamWorks

“Great information and some pretty solid belly laughs! We had a great response from the attendees.” – Meaghan Muir, Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School

Anyone interested in seeing our children develop greater self-confidence and resilience would do well to read her book and hear her speak.” – Olen Kalkus, Headmaster, Princeton Academy
