RE: This Isn't Kenya: Maryland Parents Investigated by CPS for Letting 10 and 6 Year Olds Walk Home One Mile from School
It was a 10 yr old and 6 yr old and it the state of Maryland you have to be 13 to be unsupervised. That's why CPS was called out.

I don't think there is anything wrong with a 10 yr old walking to school. The issue here is the legality of it and the parents letting small children have free range and roam around unsupervised. This was obviously going on for a while. Some teacher or parent probably got ticked off and called.

And about the 10 and 3 yr old....if parents are letting a 10 yr old, I don't care how tall, take 3 yr old out in a stroller unsupervised. ..that's negligence or laziness on the parents.

There is a middle ground between being overprotective and underprotective, between being a disciplinarian and a buddy.
