From Danielle Meitiv’s Facebook page comes glorious news!
GOOD NEWS on the free-range front:
We received the notice about CPS’ findings in the second, horrible incident when the kids were picked up on April 12th. They “ruled out” neglect, which means BOTH cases have been decided in our favor and are now closed. There is more to do to make sure this doesn’t happen to other families, but at least for now we can breathe a little easier.
I’m hoping we can now ALL breathe a little easier. It is going to be harder for any CPS officials to charge parents with neglect when it comes to letting kids walk or play outside, now that we all know exactly how this case panned out…and how ridiculous it was in the first place.
Kudos to Maryland for swallowing its pride and admitting this was never a case of bad parenting or endangered kids. And in honor of this historic day: SEND YOUR CHILDREN OUTSIDE!
