Lenore Skenazy

Lenore Skenazy

Ever since her column “Why I Let My 9-Year-Old Ride the Subway Alone” created a media firestorm, Lenore has been declaring that our kids are safer and smarter than our culture gives them credit for. In response to the blowback, she started Free-Range Kids, the blog-turned-book-turned-movement that garnered her the nickname, “America’s Worst Mom.” She has lectured everywhere from Microsoft to DreamWorks to conferences and schools across the country, and even the Bulgarian Happiness Festival. You may have seen her on The Today Show, The Daily Show, Dr. Phil, or her own reality show, World’s Worst Mom. Lenore is co-founder and president of Let Grow, a nonprofit promoting childhood independence. Before all this, she was a reporter and columnist at The New York Daily News and New York Sun. Her other books include, “The Dysfunctional Family Christmas Songbook,” and “Has the World Gone Skenazy?” She also used to write for Mad Magazine, and Cracked. (Note: She did not “write for crack.”) Lenore lives in New York City with her husband and beloved computer. Her sons are gainfully employed.
