Q: Isn’t it true that only a small percentage of youth are causing any trouble at the mall, so why punish all youth with your policy?
Q: Shouldn’t it be up to the parents of the youth to decide when their children can visit the mall and whether their behavior is appropriate?
Q: What impact do you think this policy will have on your retailers, especially those that cater to a young shopper?
A: Any youth who cannot establish that he/she is over the designated age requirement or under the supervision and control of a parent or guardian will be accompanied to our Youth Center where they can make arrangements to telephone for transportation home. Until a ride can be secured, the youth will be asked to wait in the Youth Center where they will be supervised and have access to television and games.[/toggle]
