I think I'm raising a Free Range Kid!!!

My Cub Scout Pack spent the night at the Franklin Institute this past Saturday. My son is nine, we were locked in, lots of security measures and everyone had cell phones. My husband and I plus a couple other parents let our boys "roam free" the entire time. We trusted them to stick together and not do anything stupid. We would check in with them now and then by phone or have a meeting time to see a show together but for the most part they were free to do what they wanted. The parents had a great time, the boys had a great time, it was a learning experience for us all. I mean how often do you get to run around a museum after hours with your two best buds and no parents to "cramp" your style!
