I’d be more concerned about a 12 year old out alone for dinner in NYC than his burgeoning taste buds. (And notice that it’s not the first time, and that he has been as young as 11 and asked to dine – OUT – alone.)
But maybe that’s just me, protective parent that I am. (Oh, and since when is it a bad thing to protect our children?) I still find it strange that no one seems to question that this kid is left alone and to go out to eat by himself in New York City. I find that a bit … disturbing.
