At what age did you or will you allow your children to walk to school or to the park alone?
How about 18?
If you think that suggestion sounds a bit overprotective, then this might surprise you. According to ABC News, “Under Maryland law, leaving anyone under 18 unsupervised constitutes child neglect.”
Danielle and Alexander Meitiv of Silver Spring, Maryland, learned that the hard away.
Mr. and Mrs. Meitiv practice “free-range parenting,” a philosophy where moms and dads give their children a great degree of independence.
