Hello, we have a toddler and we are interested in finding an area/neighborhood where people have more of a "free range parenting" mindset. We would like to find a safe area where there are many kids who are allowed to play and find their own friends in the community instead of setting up play dates every time they want to meet. I have listened to my friend with older kids complain that his kids are hyper-scheduled and we would like to avoid that. This applies to the DC area and suburbs but other areas as well. Are some areas of the country more over-scheduled? Of course! What can we do to get our kids a better environment? What statistics can you look for to show this? What are better search terms to look for than "scheduled" "free range parenting places"? It is in everyone's interest to create better communities where kids can have more control, yes?
I don't need to hear the horror stories you have heard; that is not what I am asking.

Thank you in advance
