Meet the World’s Worst Mom!

Lenore Skenazy earned the dubious title of “World’s Worst Mom” after allowing her 9-year-old son ride the NYC subway alone. After facing a media frenzy of harsh criticism, the mother of two made it her mission to rescue overprotective parents and their bubble-wrapped kids from strained relationships. Lenore is now an author and founder of the Free Range Kids movement, which teaches parents how to raise self-reliant children without going nuts with worry.
