    My grandson wandered away from his school at six years old. Something more needs to be done to keep these kids from just taking off like that.

  • Come on man...

    Come on we need more information if we are to help-
    Is the girl White? Black ? Hispanic ? Blue ?
    Hight ? Glasses ?
    Screw PC…the kid is more important

    School personnel do all they can, legally, to keep children in the school building and 'contained', but wake up people, there are some kids who are so out of control that they walk or RUN away on their own. When a teacher or other employee or volunteer is working with children their focus cannot humanly be on all the others in the room/area. CHILDREN and PARENTS must take some responsibility here. Children must be told by their parents that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES are they EVER to leave the building without an adult with them, and if they DO take off there will be serious consequences at HOME for it. It all starts in the home, folks. HOME is where the power is.
