Mike Lanza is an entrepreneur living in Silicon Valley. He has worked on a number of projects you might expect, a few start-ups in tech, finance and software.
His latest project is a bit different.
Lanza's next innovation is in parenthood. He wants to make childhood more adventurous, independent and parent-free, as reported in the The New York Times Magazine and elsewhere.
"Because children are having a lot less fun and are dealing with heightened pressures and fears from parents, far more of them are experiencing serious emotional problems," Lanza writes in his his book, "Playborhood."
