There has been lots of mention today of a survey by the Children’s Society on how children shoul be supervised/unsupervised. The report basically says that many parents are denying their children the same freedom to go out unsupervised as they enjoyed, because of fears for youngsters’ safety. There is this constant tension between freedom and safety.
43% of the 1,148 adults quizzed said children should not be allowed out with friends until they were 14. However, most said they had been allowed out without supervision aged 10 or younger.
