Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Lenore Skenazy of Free-Range Kids
Best known as the “World’s Worst Mom,” Lenore Skenazy has made a brand out of teaching parents how to raise “safe, self-reliant children – without going nuts with worry.” Her blog, Free-Range Kids, is a perennial Babble favorite, making last year’s list, as well as the one before. And rightly so: Skenazy manages to be both controversial and engaging, taking on helicopter parenting and “bubble wrap kids” with a happy vengeance. And this year, she turned her battle against overprotective parenting into a reality TV show – Bubble Wrap Kids sets Skenazy on overprotective families to help them see the error of their ways. Will Skenazy win the war against the culture of bubble wrap parenting single-handedly? We’re not betting types, but we wouldn’t lay odds against her.
