    LOL. Heck. BB gun and a sandbox full of little green plastic army men. Always good for a few hours, although the BBs could get a little bit expense, but then you mowed the neighbors yard and could buy a few boxes, which were at the local K-Mart, but that meant you had to go shopping with mom to get them, and that was always boring.

    Child protective services was a terrible idea.

    Hell, I still have all of my green army men, literally thousands of them, used to play a game where we set them up and used airsoft guns, taking turns or whatever down in the woods near this flat stone rock. Was the ****.

    What does this have to do with CPS? CPS works wonderfully for the majority of children. This is about police officers.

    Children should be investigated for that?

    How about this exchange:

    Police Officer: Hey kids, you lost?
    kids: Nope.
    PO: Where you going?
    K: Home.
    PO: You know the way?
    K: Yep.
    PO: Does your folks know where you are?
    K: Yep.
    PO: OK now, be careful.
    K: Thanks Mr. policeman.

    or

    The police put the kids in the back seat of a cruiser for 3 hours and keep them away from their parents for 6 hours all without food.

    Hmmm, which is better?

    So now, instead, we have helicopter parents who won't let their kids out to play outside, and we have children addicted to video games and junk foods, obese with diabetes. Hmm. I think we've stepped backwards, frankly.

    It doesn't help that junk food is cheap and constantly pushed onto children/parents.. Helicopter parenting can be justified in some cases, depending on where the child lives.
