    Earth To Parents.. Small Children Don't Belong Out Playing On The Road

    I live not far from our town's city hall and the road I live on gets its fair share of traffic. It's not a super busy road, but it does get plenty of traffic nonetheless. A couple of blocks down the street lives two families with young children. And sometimes, they'll let their...
