8 years old is too young to be left unsupervised in a store by a parent. You stated you went your own direction, which is essentially leaving him alone.
Had you left him alone in your house at that age alone, you would run this risk of being in trouble with authorities.
I was watching ET for some odd reason a few weeks ago, and the mother left the little blond haired girl home alone. I didnt think of anything of it when I saw it when it came out, but when I saw it, I was like, man you do that now, and you are in trouble!
Also the brother was dressed up like a "terrorist" for his halloween costume.
Point being, times have changed, and we cannot leave children alone, unsupervised. Bookstores and libraries are common place for predators that prey on children.
