Its odd to see that we need businesses to foster what children have done naturally for ages......which is hanging out with each other. I don't fault them for starting a business that does this, who knows? it may help some kids out, and there is nothing wrong with that. It is regrettable however that we have created an environment, where teens don't have these spaces to hang out in their neighborhoods.
Is this in Sugar Land proper? I so, I'm surprised, as long as I've lived in Sugar land, there never was a place for teens to hang out, there was a pizza place on Eldridge once, but it was promptly closed cause it became a "hang out", we found out then that there wouldn't be anyplace for kids to hang out. That's why there is no place in Sugar Land, town, not county, that kids have the ability to hang by themselves.
Hopefully they will have security. I don't mean to sound negative but there will always be some that will start trouble. Will there be a age limit? 13 thru 19 is a big difference. Even at the church dances I have hear that some teens bring in pot and come in groups of 15 or more just to start trouble. I really hope it works out for them.
