I know times have changed - but when I was a kid I would leave the house in the morning and not come home sometimes until dinner. Apparently today that is child endangerment! Recently a mother was arrested for letting her 7 year old son go to the park alone. I may be in the minority here, but I think that isn't child endangerment - that is letting your kid play!

Don't get me wrong here. Letting your kid run off unattended into a dangerous situation (which sometimes that is what you get a public park) is not a smart move. But this was not the case. This kid was 7 and had a cell phone, he knew the area, maybe the cops didn't believe that he was really 7, but I definitely don't think she should have been arrested for this. It should be up to the parent to decide if and when their kid is able to go off and play on their own. Watch the video below for the full story and then take the poll and let us know what you think.
