The best part was where she said she would have her cell phone with her in case the kids needed her.  It’s an 8 week “program” for the kids to play unsupervised.

To play devil’s advocate for a minute though- I do understand the need for kids to learn to handle conflict and issues that arise on the playground. I also remember when I was little we would play outside all the time by ourselves with no parents around.

But nowadays, it seems like pervs are all over and this is just an open invite for them to head to the kid buffet and pick up one or two. 

I let my kids play at the school park by themselves but they are required to call me once they arrive and when they leave. The park is 5 blocks from our house. But my kids are older. I also don’t pay some twit $350 for that service.

It sounds weird but she’s got some good points – have you seen the show bubble wrap kids?  They need some independence.  I think this is more for the parents to learn to relax and let their kids grow up a bit.
