Poll question: Should a 5 year old boy walk around a neighborhood by himself?
Advertisements [?]
I just spotted the neighbor's kid walking down the street, looking for his brother.

This boy is big for 5 (he is tall) and he is a bit rough around the edges...

I asked him what he was doing and he told me.."looking for my brother". I told him that he should go home now because people are coming home from work and the road would be getting more busy. He said..."No..I am looking for my brother".

This is a common occurrence for this family. This kid is too big for me to lift up and take home...and since this happens all the time when I am at work and not able to see what is going on ...I am a bit flummoxed as to what to do.

The parents are goofy...and if I go up there and tell them.."get your kid back home he is only 5 and shouldn't be wandering about!!!!!"...I am sure I will get an earfull from them..

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
