6 year old need advice, Is this OK! - Page 2

post #21 of 23
Sometimes people think things are illegal that are actually perfectly lawful.

I am not suprised if things are moving in that direction, though. Saddened but not suprised.

If it's illegal to have a six year old play outside by himself in a neighborhood park in your state, could you please post what state you're in?

I think the general thought is that perhaps it is illegal for a 6 year old to be unsupervised, as I would well agree it should be. I can see where playing at a park can seem like sort of a grey area, but so many laws are that way.

I would try to make contact with the parents of one or two of the kids he wants to play with and ask if it would be okay for you to walk over with him, and if their child is out, have them stick together until one of them is done playing...then if nobody else is there to play with, your son could call you on the walkie and you could walk over to pick him up....that way he is never walking alone back and forth to the park. This way you know when he is leaving the park to come home; you know he is not hanging out there alone; and people will not regularly see him walking back and forth by himself.
