comment In the USA in the year 2014, does the law forbid children from being out and about without close adult supervision?
Let me clarify one thing: I stated that I live in Colorado, but the specific example I gave of a man being arrested for not watching over his son in public happened in Ohio.

Thanks for a great answer! At the beginning, you suggest that the answer is "yes", but looking at the source you cite, it sounds like the answer is that it depends on the attitude of law enforcement and court officials. I am reminded of the debate about how to interpret the meaning of the 8th Amendment phrase "cruel and unusual punishment". As one judge might consider hanging an appropriate punishment, another might consider it cruel and unusual. Likewise, a judge would have great leeway to interpret the rules that you cite.

@anongoodnurse, that may be true, but it isn't what I'm asking about.

@Chrys, thanks for your suggestion. I have removed the phrase "helicopter parenting" from this question and clarified what the question means. Feel free to chime in with any more suggestions about how to improve the question.

I have removed the last paragraph because it doesn't really contribute to the question. However, I am asking a specific yes/no question here: "Is helicopter parenting required by law?". Although it is a yes or no question, the meat of the answer will be explaining why. I'm certain that one who knows the relevant facts can give a good answer.
