If You See Only One Documentary About Overprotection, Childhood Independence and Me This Year…

It had better be Chasing Childhood, which premieres at the DOCNYC film festival on Nov. 11.

Click here to read my Q and A with the movie’s co-director, Eden Wurmfeld, who was inspired to make it after noticing the stark disconnect between her “Free-Range” childhood and the way she was raising her own sons. Where had all that freedom (maybe even too MUCH freedom) gone, and what was taking its place?

A great film! And not just because you get to see me in action, meeting with some 6th graders who had had very little independence who go on to do amazing things on their own (thanks to the Let Grow Project)!
