The boy was old enough to be a baby sitter, twice as old as kids who are expected to make it from school, or from the school bus, to home alone. He was in fact fine, and neither was he at any elevated risk of harm. The parent was in the same building and easily findable. So what's the problem? Why get Social Services involved? (DCF drove me from Massachusetts, and they still won't leave me alone.)
