About 80% of adolescent violent crimes occur during the hours of 3-8 PM in the afternoon – again, during those risky after-school hours. What are your kids doing after school? And, what are the neighbor’s kids doing during those same hours. The more kids are left alone the higher the chances are that they will make bad decisions.
