We have a little girl who lives next to us who is always outside..... except at night. From the time she gets out of school to the time it gets dark she is outside no matter the weather. Its cold and raining today and she is outside. She tells my daughter her parents won't let her go in because her brother is sleeping. I have a little one too and I understand not wanting other kids to wake him but I couldn't imagine making my daughter stay outside

She wanted dd to come play outside today and when I told her she couldn't because it was cold she looked back at her house with a sad look on her face like she wanted to go in

I wouldn't call CPS, maybe see if she can come over and play at your house?

I am not sure. Was she properly dressed? When I was a kid we all played outside no matter the weather til dinner, not because we had to (except in summer-my mom wanted us outside in the summer) but because we wanted to be.

Has anyone ever heard of speaking to the parents first?  You don't really know for sure that her parents are locking her out   When we were kids, we played outside like that until dark..yes even in the rain and cold.  I'd find out the whole story before you call CPS.  Maybe call her parents under the guise of asking if she can come inside to play at your house because she looks a little cold out there and see what they say, and go from there.

If your gut says call, then call.
