How does it feel to send your kids off on an un-adult-supervised mini adventure?
Find out this Sunday, at Let Grow's first family meetup. We'll be in Washington Square Park with Let Grow co-founder Prof. Jonathan Haidt, author of "The Coddling of the American Mind," me (Lenore), and other local families. The idea is to send the kids, ages maybe 7 - 13, off to play at the playground with a 9-year-old Let Grow "Ambassador"while the adults chat elsewhere in the park.
So if you are in New York City, please join us:
DATE: SUNDAY DEC. 9.
TIME: 2:30 - 4
MEETUP PLACE: Under the arch in Washington Square Park
RSVP: Yes, please go to MeetUp.com and let us know if you are coming. Or at least email me at Lenore@LetGrow.org.
Hope to see you and your kids there. We're making it "easy and normal" for parents to take their eyes off their kids. And if you are NOT in New York, why not organize a local MeetUp sometime soon? The parents can hang while the kids run off and play.
And when you do -- let us know! You'll be having a #LetGrowMoment! - L
