You kids get off your Own Lawn
A neighborhood homeowner’s association in Edgewater, Florida, is causing controversy after it proposed banning kids from playing outside in their own yards. Officials at the Persimmon Place subdivision are pushing a measure to ban kids from outdoor playing in the community, unless they have an adult with them at all times. The proposal would also ban children from skateboarding, playing games like tag, or using loud toys. Parents in the community say they play to fight against the plan. If the proposal passes, homeowners caught breaking the rules will have to pay a $100 fine.
