I learned that an apartment complex in town is requiring parents to be with their children at all times. The ages are 18 and under. If the kids are out by themselves, the parents will be charged a $100 time for each time the kids are out playing without the parents. Okay, I can understand all the kids in elementary school and younger, but how would that make your older kids feel? I think that at a certain age that kids can be playing without the parents around (or even socializing). What do you think?

Sounds like I would be finding somewhere else to live. My kids are 10, 9, 8 and 4 and play outside all day by themselves. They would be beyond ticked if suddenly they weren't allowed to be outside and I don't have time or the want to sit outside all day long to watch them when they are perfectly capable of playing on their own.
And they wonder why kids are so "fat" now a days. They only get to go outside when mom or dad have the time to sit out there. Luckily we live in a very free-range neighborhood (in a house). All the kids in the neighborhood run around outside all day long without parents. It's great.
