Letters To The Editor

In my opinion, I believe that adult supervision for teens at the mall is not necessary, mainly for the fact that I feel as if all people should just be able to walk into the mall and make any type of purchases.
However, I do understand the reasoning behind why the mall would enforce the policy, mainly because the article states, “It’s not the first time the Connecticut Post Mall has enacted a similar policy. Similar rules were enforced during 2018, 2019, and 2020 after brawls involving juveniles.” So I do believe that the policy is understandable but to a certain extent the article also talks about how “The policy is in effect until Jan. 1 and applies between 4 p.m. and mall closing time. One adult can accompany up to four youths. Proof of age may be required for youths and supervising adults.”
In conclusion I believe that adult supervision at the mall is not necessary for teens.
