Lunaville: ninotchka: Lunaville: I understand giving into the peer pressure to keep your kids on lock down at all times. I periodically make my kids go outside. I have neighbors come over and report that my children were riding their bikes in the road. Yes, well circling the front lawn gets awfully boring. On another occasion, a neighbor dropped by because he thought I should know my kids were playing in the narrow strip of woods behind our house. He looked perfectly horrified when I said "Yeah, I gave them a choice between going out to play or scrubbing the toilet."I haven't done that in a while and it's time for me to get back on my toes. Yesterday, my kids spent about 10 hours on electronic devices. One spent the entire day playing a single video game. We all love our computerized activities, but geesh, that's not healthy.Do you live in my neighborhood? People are ridiculous here. Most of them either have no kids or have one precious snowflakeI've found people with no kids at all are nearly always parenting experts.

thurstonxhowell: Uhhh, kids under 10 shouldn't play in the street. Hell, unless you live on a quiet cul-de-sac, no one should play in the street. The street is for cars.
orbister: thurstonxhowell: Uhhh, kids under 10 shouldn't play in the street."Play in the street" is UK -speak for "play around the neighbourhood", as opposed to playing in parks, gardens and other set-aside areas.
