Stupid, stupid term.
Whoever came up with it should have his/her mouth washed out with lye soap repeatedly.
The government and nosy busy bodies want to run everything.
Both groups are composed of the stupid and incompetent after power.
Now to the issue of allowing your children to go out alone.
It depends upon the circumstances; just like most things.
One size does not fit all.
Use good judgement.
In all cases reported in the news, the parents were correct in allowing their children to be out and about by themselves.
This is solely a local issue.
No federal government involvement is necessary.
The facts no one wants to read.
Comments and referrals to this blog would be greatly appreciated.
