Raising Independent Kids with LET GROW@ Zucker Exploration Area

Join Park Slope Parents and Let Grow for a special PSP Fall Friday @ Zucker Natural Exploration Area and Nellie's Lawn in Prospect Park. 

Bring the kids, a blanket, and some snacks! The older kids can play at Zucker while the adults gather on nearby Nellie's Lawn to get some vitally important wisdom and tips on raising independent kids from Lenore Skenazy and her team at Let Grow**. 

Our big PSP Banners will be hanging to welcome you in! 

Information From Let Grow: 
As parents, we all want to raise kids who are resourceful, resilient and ready to succeed at school and beyond. But lately, thanks to a society that keeps coming up with new ways to frighten parents (ever watch the news?), we're holding our kids closer than ever.

How can we raise nimble problem-solvers if an adult is always right there, solving their problems first?

Let Grow, aims to restore childhood resilience by pushing back on overprotection. They know it's hard to buck the trends, so they are here to support you in gradually giving your child the kind of freedom and responsibility (and fun) you probably remember from your own childhood -- when the crime rate was actually higher!
