Ugh, honestly this sounds like an extreme story and a case of mind-your-own-business to the neighbors. I’m just letting my 8-year-old daughter cross the street alone in our neighborhood because I’m slowly letting go of my helicopter parenting ways (it’s hard, but I’m getting there!). Instead of putting the mom in jail, shouldn’t the neighbors work together as a community and keep a good eye on the kid while he’s playing outside? Isn’t that what people used to do several decades ago?
Tell us Hot Moms, what do you think? Is it now wrong to let our toddlers play outside in a playground by themselves? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
