That's not true. Crimes against children are so much lower now than they ever have been.

You people are retarded! How in the hell is a child supposed to learn to use their imagination if they're stuck inside all the time. I let my child play in my fenced in back yard by herself all the time. I check on her constantly it doesn't make me a bad parent or a neglectful parent. Bad things happen to lots of people and everyone is so quick to blame others for bad behavior. You can't stop a psychopath from doing crazy things. I am so tired of people claiming abuse and neglect over stupid things it gripes my ass. Worry about your own lives and stop trying to tell others how to raise their children!

I agree with you. Technically parents by law are not allowed. It's child neglect. DFS can be called on them. And probably should be in some cases. In my neighborhood, the kids are walking up and down the streets. IN the streets. I see 4 year olds alone every day when it's warm enough for them to be out. That's abusive. What happens when their kid gets kidnapped? The tragedy is, they'd never see them again. I'd rather knock on the parents door and tell them to grow up and watch their kids outside, than see their kids get taken, or hit, or hurt.
You people are paranoid schizophrenics wtf is wrong with you you are more likely to die in the bathtub or in a car crash etc. than someone kidnapping them etc.

That would make me happy if the grave digger would put a piece of duct tape over his mouth for a month. Funny how Fox got pulled so the grave digger couldn't watch Fox,,, and grave digger is off Topix for a month,,, didn't have Fox to feed the grave digger his talking points ,,,so grave digger didn't have anything to say for a month,,,ha haa haa!!!

so I have a question. is it neglect when u let ur kids go somewhere bare footed and people always look down on them saying where are ur shoes? when the child just wants to go bare footed because it feels better then the stinky socks and shoes and plus that's the reason most people have foot fungi because of always wearing socks and shoes. im tired of people saying put ur shoes on I don't have kids but when I do im going to let them go bare footed anywhere. but not school.

I Miss seeing children playing outdoors. CreatCreating new play toys and going on adventures in the backyard, and just plain unadulterated fun. Where has the laughter gone?

Here's what I've been seeing over the years. Parents allowing very young children to walk through the neighborhood to go play at the park. It doesn't matter if they are 3 years old, walking with a 6 year old sibling. Or a group of 5 year olds. Parents are being neglectful and need to be called in to DFS. For the protection of the kids. There's risk of the children being kidnapped or run over and either injured or killed. Just today I drove past the park over on Deatherage and saw the police on the side of the road, talking to two small children that were alone. The mom then came and got them. This should be done EVERY time a kid is alone. This has GOT to stop. Some of these parents are so lazy!
Definitely off kilter, that. Those kids need to get home immediately and keep a much better eye on their parents.

Was it better under Reagan, when the murder rate was much higher....when the president was giving weapons to Iran, a country that had recently held American hostage for more than a year.....when the president was giving amnesty to 2.8 million illegals.....in 1983 / 1984 an average of 190 cops were murdered per year, under Obama in 2013/2014 an average of 119 cops were murdered per year (70 fewer per year).

You know what I like about you GD? You don't check anything, and you are wrong nearly all the time.

Maybe if enough of us begin calling the cops when we see young children walking the streets alone, the parents will get the hint. It's worse than leaving a child in a car alone while going into WalMart. It's child abuse. It's neglect. It's against the law.
Ok well I dont agree with kids being left alone to play in the street or at any public place but I think its fine to allow ur child to play outside alone and check in or be checked on regularly. There are bad things that happen but it doesn't every time a child steps foot outside. I have a fence and have set boundaries and keep my window or door open so I can see my kids at all times. I have had my neighbor call and report me many times and i get the same thing everytime. The cops come out and see that they can't reach the road and are perfectly safe and they leave....i think some people should mind their own business! And all this ranting on here about how the parents that allow this dont want their kids is completely false. Quit being so judgmental. Not everyone has the same parenting techniques and if no harm is done to the kid then it shouldn't be an issue!

You are all idiots. Its perfectly fine to let ur kid play outside alone. Howcome just in the last decade somebody thought it was a bad idea, growing up in thayer and i remember walking around town like a boss when i was four, walking the highway from mammoth to thayer when i was ten. Waljed to school everymorning. Teach your child how to stay out of the way of cars and out of the road and 99.9 percent of the time they will be fine, unless the driver is at fault. If u dont teach your kid this which seems obvious u dont since u never let them play outside. You are abusing them. Something doesnt seem right about keeping a child locked in a house all day just because lets say i have a headache or im sleeping from a rough day at work. Get real

Anyone who believes it's okay to let a four-year-old play outside without supervision should not be a parent. It has never and will never be okay.

I can't believe I'm going to say this.... But I actually agree with Tim, kids should not be running around in the street.... HOWEVER the raceway traffic by the park is definitely a problem for so many reasons.

You kraker ass whitey wasnt no boss at 4 years old. wasnt no highway walker at 10 years old. Today with 63 hwy having traffic from all over the Country traveling through a parent would be stupid to let their children under the age of 17 years old walk along that highway. Maybe back in the day way back in the day when 63 highway was still dirt. It's been way longer then a decade when anyone let their kids run around outside without some adult watching and when you was 4 your parents were child abusers or hoping you would get abducted by a stranger. Crazy ass small town whitey.
