Jay loves to swim. He lives near a beach but sometimes there is no lifeguard.

Is it okay for Jay to swim when there is no lifeguard?

Bobby lives five houses away from the community center and usually walks home with his friend Jay, who lives next door to him. Sometimes, when Jay isn’t at the community center, Bobby walks home by himself and cuts through the alley, behind the houses instead of taking the sidewalk that leads from the community center to his house.

Do you think it is a good idea for Bobby to walk home alone? Do you think Bobby should ever use the alley, even when Jay is with him? What would you do if you were Bobby?
