A new survey looked into how much times have changed. Over 1,000 parents were asked about some different activities . . . if they'd let a 10-year-old do them today without supervision . . . and if their parents let THEM do each of them at the same age. Here's what they said
1. Would you let your 10-year-old stay home alone for an hour or two? 53% said THEY did it by the time they were 10 . . . but only 36% said it's okay for kids today.
2. Walk or bike to school alone? 68% did it . . . only 43% would let their kids do it now.
3. Play in a public park on their own? 51% did it as kids . . . only 26% would let their kids do it now.
4. Go trick-or-treating on Halloween without an adult? 44% did it when they were kids . . . only 24% would let their own kids do it.
