When I said "roaming" the streets at night I meant what we did when I was in middle school... we would literally walk around, play manhunt, go to the playgrounds and hang out... NOT out causing trouble. None of our parents were bad parents we were 12-14 year olds just enjoying the warm weather that we don't so frequently have here up north

I understand what you are saying & I don't thing anyone was calling you (or your parents) bad. Letting 12-14 year olds out alone around the streets here at night, even with totally innocent intentions, will more than likely bring trouble. Why? Because there may very well be others waiting for your kids with not the best intentions in mind. Those are just the unfortunate facts.. In addition, Florida has a transient population. Some of these people have drug & mental issues. Where do these people sleep & hang out after dark? Often parks & playgrounds. While many of them are harmless, there are some I wouldn't want my kids running into without an adult around if you get my drift.
