Yay or Nay? Poll Results: It Should be Illegal for Children Under 9 to Play Outside by Themselves
A new poll has found that many Americans think that it should be illegal for kids under 9 years old to play outside by themselves.
While 82% of those polled agreed with the idea of a law, 63% took a step farther and felt that the age of 12 was still too young to be playing unsupervised.
Many say threats and dangers are greater now than when they were kids. Others say that this fear of crime is over-hyped and causes by our 24-7 news cycle.
Do you agree? Or is that just stupid? -Alan
