Lenore Skenazy (New York, NY), a journalist by trade, spent 14 years at the New York Daily News as a reporter-turned-opinion columnist, and two more at The New York Sun. In 2008, after her column Why I Let My 9 Year Old Ride the Subway Alone landed her on several national talk shows from The Today Show to Dr. Phil, Lenore founded the book and blog Free-Range Kids. In addition to her own reality TV show, Worlds Worst Mom, Lenore has lectured internationally from Microsoft to DreamWorks to the Sydney Opera House, and has been profiled everywhere from The New York Times to The New Yorker. She also founded the nonprofit organization Let Grow with the goal of turning agreement into action, making it easy and normal to give kids the same kid of freedom older generations had growing up. Lenore received her B.A. from Yale and her masters degree from Columbia.
