Child Labor laws violated

Attorney General issued a press release citing child labor violations. Somerville and Cambridge stores included.
Read Press Release
Note at the bottom someone comments on how having these kids work past 10 is completely acceptable because they are keeping kids off streets. Most of the citations were in places such as Burlington, Hyannis, Newton and Taunton. Also for stores such as Hollister, Things Remembered, KB toys, and The Children's Place. (hehe).
Lets be realistic. Working is awesome for teenagers. Allows social experience they may not be getting elsewhere, allows them to create their own work ethic, as well as earn money they can selfishly spend. I think teenagers should be working. It is super, but i don't think saying working past 10 is going to stop them from getting into trouble. Laws are there for a reason, and if you think working in the mall is what cures your kid of peer pressure, and a whole list of other things that leads to drugs/violence etc. You are wrong. It may help a little, but having a child work till 5am is definitely not the answer.

Here's the thing, i am unable to find any other details about this event, so I am still wondering about the free meal, but if it is in fact so-how can this get any better! Either way, it's free and laughter will definitely be involved.

Kids Play Indoors

There is almost nothing worse than winter activities when the kids are sick of them. They just want to go outside and play, run around build snow men., play on the playgrounds. But all the playgrounds are covered in snow, and when the snow melts they are muddy and gross. Well the YMCA is opening its doors for kids to run around for $1. Parents/caregiver must supervise their kids constantly, but it will give you a chance to meet up with other parents while your children run out some of that pre-nap energy. The YMCA is right next to the library. Run off some energy, and go check out the library for story time.
The program is funded by the Somerville Children's Network and is run on Wednesday's 9a-11a. Eligible ages are 0-5years.

Children's indoor play space
101 Highland Ave. Somerville
Cost: Every child is $1.
Every Wednesday

Playspace will be closed the week of school vacations. (Wed. 2/20)

New leaf

I just wanted to apologize for our lack of posts. There was definitely not a lack of interest or love for our reader(s). But it has been an insane month. As December usually is. So...I attempted to find something for you guys today, and I am sad to say there is very little happening in the world of Cambridge/Somerville this weekend.
This is my promise to not forget you, and January will be a much better month in terms of Camberville. New Year equals maybe a new look? Hmmm! Camberville will thrive this year! As always, anything you would like posted, or questions/concerns can be sent via comments or email.
