How old should children be to be out on their own?
On the streets, in a library, at the mall. How old is old enough? The library that I work at has a policy that “children 10 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times”. This means an 11 year old child can be there for hours on end, reading, playing the computer, hanging out with friends, eating and drinking out of the snack machine, coming and going from the building as he/she pleases.
What do you think?
