Friday Question of the Day Special Edition

Today’s Friday question of the day is submitted by a reader. Elizabeth asks:
“I have a few questions of the day. Recently, I met a neighbor who has spent the last 37 years living on my block, raising children, and working at at least one business in the neighborhood.

She described the block of 37 years ago as being full of children, who were constantly running in and out of various families’ houses, and she said that her children were raised by the entire community.

Today, we have very few children on the block… or maybe they just stay out of sight. I know two boys who ride their big wheels in the alley, but that’s it.

Why are there no more families with young children?”
