  • I would do something, but that is your place to decide if you want to. Im sorry but 7 year old has no business being outside alone after dark or going to store alone city or no city. That is just screaming for abduction or accident!

  • Is it in a fenced yard or not? I was allowed to play outside after dark as a kid, but only in the back yard, which was totally fenced in. 7 seems really young to me to be walking anywhere by themselves. I was in the 3rd grade before I was even allowed to walk to school by myself and I am not sure I would even do that anymore.
