Lenore Skenazy thinks America is creating whole generations of dependent, frightened children who will never be ablel to make it in the world.
Overly-dependent "helicopter parents" hover over their kids' every move, stifling their inate curiousity and desire to explore their world. The result, says author and "World's Worst Mom." Skenazy, are thousands of kids unable to fend more themselves or perform simple tasks such as using a knife to cut an apple or take public transportation.
Sometimes controversial, always interesting, Lenore Skenazy is author of "Free Range Kids," and a vocal advocate for allowing children to discover the world for themselves and grow into mature, confidant adults.

The St. George Book Festival is celebrating its 10th Anniversary.
As part of this year's activities, the St. George Book Festival has asked its community one very important questions many readers, teachers and libraries have asked, "What is Social Media’s Impact on Literacy?"
The St. George Book Festival will be airing live here on BlogTalkRadio's featured World of Ink Network on Wednesday, October 21, 2015, starting at 5 pm Pacific - 6 pm Mountain - 7 pm Centeral - 8 pm Eastern and will offer a free community forum on “Social Media’s Impact on Literacy.”
The National Assessment of Adult Literacy defines literacy as "using printed and written information to function in society, to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential." The illiteracy skill level is based on a fourth-grade level. The reason for the reference to the fourth-grade level mentioned above is that in nearly all U.S. schools, the only reading taught after the fourth grade is remedial reading. If that is all they can read, however, they are functionally illiterate. This means about 23% of the national U.S. population falls under the category functionally illterate.
The discussion will take place at DXATC, 610 S. Airport Road in St. George at 6 pm Moutain fon October 21, 2015 for those who live in the area. Panel members include Lenore Madden, Casie Forbes, Stace Hall, Kristy Pike, and students of DSU. This discussion will tackle the expanding role in Social Media on literacy.

What is Transgender?
I think sometimes, about what it means to be transgender. I probe and probe for answers, because as the possibility for a new age of enlightenment and safety increases, the others want to know. I’ve come up with many answers, but I can hold to none. I don’t deserve to paint the definition of a culture with the limited experiences I’ve had. I don’t see myself in the transgender identified people allowed on television. I don’t see myself in the transgender identified people making news feeds and giving high profile interviews. And as my nation’s exposure to our culture increases, likely will their curiosity. Am I transgender? Do I have the right? I’ve heard doctors, psychiatrists, may refuse transgender patients access to hormone therapy based on how dedicated or convincing their portrayal of their identified gender. If you want to be a man or woman, you’ll have to look like the women and men on TV. If you want to be transgender, you’ll have to look like the trans identified people on TV. Every single one of us who has an active role as either participant or observer in our society is prey to the crisis of validity. Am I pretty enough? Am I strong enough? Am I brave enough? Mom enough? Dad enough? Competitive enough? Successful enough? Rich enough? Sexy enough? Pious enough? It never ends. We’re, as a nation of people, being crushed and compartmentalized by this ever present lens, looming over us, exploiting our weaknesses and fears so it may grow wider, and support itself as it follows us, seemingly forever into the future.
On this week’s The Farm radio talk show on the Overthrow Radio Network, host Chris Petherick talks with Lenore Skenazy, the author of the popular book Free-Range Kids.
Chris and Lenore will discuss, among other things, parenting in the modern age of fear. Topics will include recent cases of parents who have been arrested for merely wanting their children to be independent and self-reliant.
Lenore, who's been called the world’s worst mom for inspiring parents to raise self-sufficient kids, maintains her own website FreeRangeKids, which offers a good reality check on the constant fearmongering put out by the nanny state.
Check out Lenore’s other sites, Free Range Friend and Lenore Speaks.
