Did they ever get outside by themselves?



Okay I guess I was not clear. Did they ever accidentally get outside by themselves? Let themselves out while you were otherwise detained.

When I out had one child, no they were never outside by themselves. When I had my 2nd my oldest was 4. I wasn't comfortable with that still. Now my oldest is 11 my 2nd is 7 my 3rd is 6 (next mmonth) and youngest is 3. We have a fully fenced yard and lock on the gate. We are surrounded by woods. If my oldest daughter is outside i feel comfortable. During the summer I have the door open with screen.

Yes both of my boys were able to escape outside by themselves so my dad hung locks clear at the tops of the doors where the boys couldn't reach them.

Mine were about 5 when they were allowed to. It was slightly different for each kid.

Yes, in my backyard where I could see them while I cooked & cleaned in the kitchen.

Yup. The yard is fenced and they don't leave the yard. Either I or SO check on them to make sure they're behaving and alive. It's perfectly fine for kids to play outside.
