You NEVER escort a child by themselves. Sorry but this is a lesson learned 
the hard way by the BSA. Boy Scouts calls it the buddy system but you don't 
take a child anywhere alone. You start the your activities with that march. 
If not you find Susie's mom or dad and THEY take care of it. MOC activities 
were never meant to be a babysitting service.

Its either that or you have enough help to spare an adult. You want one to 
go and then have little Susie accuse you of doing something that either 
makes it impossible for you to play any more or that can get you arrested? 
Remember two deep protects not only the child but the adult.
