I am sure I will be bashed but whatever.
I do not see the big deal if my DD is 8yrs old & out riding her bike w/her friends. I am not out there watching her 24/7. I can't be out there all the time & she LOVES being outside.
All of us randomly check on all the kids, all the kids check in periodically & ask if they can go to someone's house.
How in the hell is this child endangerment? I guess I am a horrible parent bc my DD comes home from school, does her homework & hops out the door while I make dinner. I guess it would be better if I made her stay in & watch TV or play video games.
I wish people would learn to let other parents be, I raise my kids how I see fit & they raise theirs how they see fit. I don't walk up to them telling them that they are suffocating their children so what gives them the right to tell me anything!
Am I the only parent w/an 8yr old that can go ride her bike in the neighborhood, or to a friends house that is literally right behind us?
And yes we have sidewalks & very very little traffic around here.
