Let my children play!

Stupid people...

From 5 on I was completely on my own, walking miles around city doing whatever I wanted, meeting people, etc.

Why is this considered bad?

Is this a Texas law or can a parent get in trouble anywhere in America?

There are plenty of catchall laws that can be applied according to the current tastes, fads, and perceptions. Endangering children is one of those. The neighbor is obviously one of those innumerate women irrationally afraid of the world, ruining their children.

How can a child learn to become independent if the laws won't let them try things on their own?

They should arrest the neighbor for filing a false report and discipline the arresting officer.
