Kids running around alone in the streets

Hey guys, just a quick question, I live in a busy inner street and everyday there are many kids some under 3 years old roaming around alone, Every time I back out of my driveway slowly I end up slamming my brakes because of some kids running behind my car without looking. I have talked to the neighbors about there kids and they just ignore it. Well, yesterday was my last straw, I hear some noise and look out my window I see a child couldn't have been more then 2 years old, knocking on the lower window in the front of the house yelling "mommy" the light then turns on and the mother comes out and picks up her kid and says "how did you get out here". Can I call the police regarding all these kids roaming around on the roads with there power wheels without any guardians around?

Wait until you have kids of your own before you criticize too harshly. They can "get away" really easily on you. It's the attitude after the fact that is more important. If it is one of relief, you know it is a parent that cares. If not, well...you might have better luck with the ministry of child and family services than with the police.

Exactly this. There isn't too much we can do ourselves, and we'd end up passing the information on to the Ministry ourselves.

Hate to say it, but some people aren't going to learn until one of their kids does get squished.

Not much you can do though, other than to use your mirrors a bit more often.

I got a kid and she didn't get away from me and for a long time when she was real young it was only me looking out for her.
A responsible caring parent has many tools at their disposal to keep their kids under control and accounted for.

If they're "getting away" on a regular basis, then there's something the parents need to change!

Imo that's a bullshit excuse. I'm not a parent, and therefore have LIMITED experience with children, but when I babysat my friend's 3 year old, she NEVER got outside the house. These parents need to pay more attention to their surroundings if their children are getting outside by themselves, end of story.

I completely agree with you.

Leashes are something for pets, and if a parent cant keep control of their own kid then they need to reconsider their parenting skills. Kids are human beings, and putting a leash on them seems really degrading. Everytime I see a parent with their kid on a leash it kind of pisses me off inside.

haha.. you guys make me laugh.

hchang, stop posting, it's obvious that you don't have a kid.

Phil@Rise, as a parent, i'm sure you're well aware of the difficulties of raising a child. Having seen my sister raise a BOY as a single parent, try not to be so quick to judge the parenting skills of others. MANY factors contribute to which tools you need to use to raise a child.

if i were you i'd back in your car next time so you can drive out head first. even though these parents should be looking after their kids, you still wouldnt want these kid's health on your conscience if you accidentally bumped them w/ your car.

Yeah, do this if you're both retarded and delusional.

See how the cops feel when their parents call them out.

Subsequently, see how the judge feels at your hearing.
