  • I feel safe walking around, but I'm always scared somebody will break in! My neighbor's car got stolen last week... and there are lots of break-ins in the neighborhood!

  • Yes, I do. I usually walk between 7:30-8:00 with my kids right now cause it's too hot during the day.

  • Yes! I have never felt intimidated walking around any neighborhood. I live in Baltimore city and have always felt safe walking around at 3 am after leaving the bar. I just walk fast and do not look or speak to anyone I may come into contact with. Also, I got a pentagram tattoo on my forearm about 14 years ago. I believe this protects me from evil doings, it has always worked for me(because I have faith in it).

  • Alone...No not ever. With my kids during the day ONLY. I live in the ghetto. We have alot of problems with drugs being dealt.

  • No, never. When with my kids my "mother-lion" instinct kicks in and I feel more powerful than when I'm by myself, but safe? Nope, never.

  • I do both day and night... My two year old is usually with me... Jesstay is like me- she lives in and loves a small town... My SO often walks to work, for multiple reasons, so we walk and meet him when he gets off (it's about three blocks tops). My son has a car stroller, which is great.... I have my 12 year old brother alot (who is VERY mature for his age)and when SO doesn't get off til 11, and my son is already asleep, then I walk by myself... The brother keeps an eye on my son... I should add that the only time he watches JJ is 10-20 minutes while my son is sleeping...

  • Yes, I feel safe. I live in a nice closeknit neighborhood. Know people in a lot of houses. If I were screaming someone would come out.

    Answer by sweetmom1007 at 8:07 PM on Aug. 9, 2009

  • Nope. I live in a very safe town, but I'm paranoid as hell. I'm scared in my own apartment! I can't go to sleep unless my fiance is here. A guy my brother went to school with was a victim of a random murder in his very own house. A guy broke in, walked up to his bedroom, shot him point blank dead, and walked out. Didn't steal anything.

    I'm terrified all the time. It sucks.
