Father’s arrest ridiculous

I read an article in the newspaper the other day, with total disbelief I might say, where a man was arrested for “endangering the welfare of a child” by leaving his 14-year-old home with his younger sibling – 14 for God’s sake.

I can’t believe how asinine this is, but then again, in this upside down society, almost anything ridiculous is possible.

My mother and father used to leave me and my younger brother home by ourselves when I was 11 – yes, 11 years old. That was during a saner time.

How old does a child have to be to be left alone – 30, 35 or older? Unbelievable.
