Lenore Skenazy

Free-Range Kids, America's Worst Mom
Lenore Skenazy is “America’s Worst Mom.” (Google it!)

The New York City columnist-turned-reality TV show host got that title after letting her 9-year-old son take the subway, alone. In response to the enormous media blowback, she founded the book and blog, “Free-Range Kids,” which launched the anti-helicopter parenting movement.

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 Dr. Phil to The View, The Today Show, NPR, Good Morning America, Nightline and the BBC to The Daily Show.

She has lectured internationally, including talks at Microsoft Headquarters, Disney and the Sydney Opera House, and has written for publications ranging from The Wall Street Journal to Mad Magazine. She’s a graduate of Yale and lives in NYC with her husband and two sons.
