Summer is Almost Here; May My Children Go Outside to Play?

Spring is in the air and summer is just around the corner.  Soon children will be out of school and at home looking for something to do.  During summer, most children want to simply go outside and play.  But all too often a child will be playing in the common areas of an apartment complex and the next thing you know out comes the apartment manager and tells the child to “Get inside, now! There is no playing out here!” Is this wrong? In most cases, yes, it is wrong.  Yet the manager will tell you that the rules say that all children under 18 years old must be supervised at all times by an adult or parent.  Is this true?  No, it’s not.  Perhaps in years past you’ve simply put up with it.  But let me encourage you to do something about it this year.  It will set an example for your children, and you will be happy that you did.  And the kids will be outside where they belong, playing and enjoying life. Life can change for the better, and we are here to help.
