I let my son play outside unattended.

I have a 5yo and an infant. I don't take the infant outside, and our yard is fenced in. No dogs. He has a play tent outside and he's outside playing with bubbles. The back door is open so I can see him and hear him. Is this bad?

Why? All that's out there is grass. We don't have a deck, so no stairs or anything to fall off of.

I'd do it.. As long as my yard was absolutely completely fenced in and there were absolutely no way he could get out..

If he's fenced in, I don't see much of an issue. Just check on him often :)

It's a privacy fence and the latch on the gate is at least 5 feet up, he'd have to go through a lot to get out, and by then, I'd hear him and be out there.
