Child Rearing History

Katrinka and I were just talking about how free we were as parents and how free our kids were back in the hippy days and into the eighties. I told her how Dianne (now Daya) and I and Ed and Meg Brown let our six year old kids, Kelly and Lichen, walk from the ZC Page Street City Center to Market Street in the morning to take a trolly to school. That's in a fairly high crime SF neighborhood. We did until one afternoon Lichen said that a man tried to take her away but people there wouldn't let him. After that they got the proper parental escort. Years later she revealed that she'd made that up so they wouldn't have to walk there by themselves anymore.
