29. And people wonder why so many kids are obese?
Here in Fargo it is against the law for a kid under the age of 12 cannot be outside unsupervised. This is insane, I was born in 1986 and when I was little I was walking around my hometown when I was 7. People complain about kids sitting in front of TVs playing video games, but what else are they to do? Nowadays if a bunch of kids showed up at a park baseball field without parents the police would be called and CPS would be investigating the parents.
