Mother Charged With Child Neglect For Letting 7-Year-Old Play At Park Alone

It’s summer, which means school’s out for summer and kids are headed to the playground for some fresh air.

But how young is too young to play without adult supervision. That’s a question one Florida mom is dealing with after she was arrested for letting her 7-year-old walk a half-mile to the park alone.

Nicole Gainey was charged with felony child neglect, even though she gave her son Dominic a cell phone in case of an emergency. Police weren’t satisfied, citing that “numerous sex offenders reside in the vicinity.”

Carson and Producer Angie debated about the incident, which is making headlines nationwide, and some of you loyal listeners also had a chance to chime in. Take a listen:
