In 1970, I was 7 years old living in Irvine, TX. I roamed my whole neighborhood alone, went to parks, walked to school, and even bought fireworks at a local fireworks stand they set up just before the 4th of July. Now, if you let your kid out of sight for even a moment you get charged with Child Neglect. What a weird society we've become.
