Is anyone here going to participate in the 3rd annual Take Your Kids to the Park and Leave Them There Day tomorrow at 10 am (your local time)? It's geared for kids ages 7 and up.
My son won't be participating because he will be at a sleepover birthday party. He and the other kids will probably be having their breakfast at that time or playing in the yard or a nearby field.
Every day in the country where I live (Germany) is Take Your Kids to the Park and Leave Them There Day. Kids play in local parks, even in the big cities, all the time without any adult supervision. The little ones do have their parents with them at the parks and playgrounds. But once they reach ages 7-8, they walk, ride their bikes, or ride their scooters to the parks by themselves and play until it's time to come home.
