but yes, as every other reasonable person on this thread stated, the CPS is outta control and should be sued for this. go hassle the couch potatoes who are sucking our medical system dry.
The problem is with the 6 yr old. 10 yrs old is too young to watch a 6 yr old for that distance. Also depends on the traffic on the road as well. I wouldn't let my daughter walk a mile home with just a 10yr old....would have to be at least a teenager.
We let our 6yr old walk with other 6yr olds and 10yr olds down to the bus stop. But its only about a 1/4 mile and other parents are at the bus stop and its in the neighborhood not crossing roads for a mile.
I would have to agree with CPS. Unless you have or have had a 6 yr old your opinion on this doesn't mean much.
