Did you ever do it as a kid?
Would you ever allow your kids?
I never did growing up. I lived in Chicago and our neighborhood was pretty rough (people being shot and stabbed, gangs and drug violence, breaking and entering--our garage was broken into twice) although no where near as bad as it is now.
We now live in a quiet little town outside of Vancouver, WA and I set the tent up in our backyard a couple weeks ago for my oldest daughter's 11th birthday. Her, her 8yo sister and their two friends (11 and 10) camped out that night. The next night my 4 kids slept out there. They slept in the tent for like 4 nights in a row. I just finally took it down on the 4th because the novelty wore off, lol.
Apparently this is a pretty common childhood event for kids in the area. The two girls that camped out have both camped in their own yards before.
Once our grass has a chance to grow back in I'll probably set the tent back up again.
