Government Warns Parents: Kids Should Not Cross Street without An Adult Till Age 12

    The state Idaho tried to pass a law to prevent childhood marriages. The law didn’t pass. It’s ironic how governments try to pass a law regarding kids to cross the street. An interesting thought: A 13 year old can get married with a parents permission, but an 11 year old cannot cross the street by themselves even with parental permission.
