  • Are you afraid something bad will happen to them if they go out front to play? If so, do other people feel you are being irrational with those fears?

  • How old are they? My son is 8 and can go out front, but my 5, 4 and 1 year old play in back until 6-7!

  • I started letting my kids go play out front when they were around 6-7, and my 2 older ones are always together. Now they are 9 and 11 and all over the neighborhood with the other kids from around here. I try not to worry too much!

  • My kids don't go outside alone at all, except for my oldest, who is allowed to walk down to the mail box, which is not near the street at all- it's a community lock box type thing. But that's a go straight there, come straight back kind of deal. They do not play outside alone at all.
