Have Lenore Skenazy Speak
Lenore Skenazy is a fascinating, funny author, mom, and renowned speaker. She founded The Free-Range Kids movement and wrote the book by that name.
Lenore’s feisty belief that our kids are safer and smarter than our culture gives them credit for has landed her on talk shows from The Daily Show to to Dr. Phil, The View, The Today Show, NPR, Good Morning America, Nightline, ABC World News Tonight, CBS Early Show, CNN, FoxNews, Anderson Cooper, the BBC, CTV and CBC. That’s not to mention her reality TV show, World’s Worst Mom.
She has lectured internationally, from Microsoft Headquarters to DreamWorks to the Bulgarian Happiness Festival (a real thing!), as well as schools across the country. And she has written for everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Mad Magazine. Yep. The Mad Magazine. 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
