Illegal for kids to play unsupervised?

Smile Yes this is a shameless plug but I'm still on a mini-rant about this topic and want to learn if I'm completely off base!

I found this on my news feed yesterday: A mom was arrested for "child endangerment" for allowing her 2 kids (ages 9 and 6) to ride their scooters in front of their home on a quiet cul-de-sac! (She claims she was watching them from a chair in her yard. Neighbor claimed they were unsupervised.)

Drop by my post "Illegal for kids to play unsupervised?", click "Show conversation" and weigh in! Do you agree with the neighbor or the mom? Do you think that kids should not be allowed to play outside unless they have supervision at all times?

"Join in the conversation now!"

I will drop by this weekend and leave a thought or two. Thanks for bringing this topic to our attention. It could possibly be one of my "soap boxes" but saving that for the discussion.
