Free to Roam

Great 7 min PBS video. Don't entirely shelter kids from life, but allow them access to risk and failure in a semi-structured environment. Aren't mistakes the wiser teachers and the only path to building character?

Perhaps never more true than with transportation. Roaming the neighborhood was a right of passage for kids that is now largely forbidden. Help bring it back!
