We all want to keep our kids safe. But sometimes protecting them against the unknown can do more harm than good. Let Grow is an organization that helps children discover their interests, skills, and limits, by encouraging independent exploration. This doesn’t mean disregarding safety, but rising above our current culture of fear.
“When you’re a kid and your parents believe in you, it’s transformative,” says founder Lenore Skenazy. “When parents trust in their kids and let their kids go, it’s a gift.”
Through solo tasks and reflection, children in Let Grow’s curriculum are able to engage with the possibilities of the world around them. The first step? Learning to trust themselves.
