At what age did you or will you let your child/children play outside by themselves?
Back yard im not too worried about, DD started going out there alone around 3, but 7 or 8 at the youngest before they can leave the yard or play in the front alone.
I have always had the buddy system or no system....made me feel safe and it kept them safe.
Unless we are talking fenced backyard...then at least 3yrs of age
My kids just started being trusted outside alone this year. They are 10 and 8. I let them walk the next block over to a park. As long as they are using the body system I have no problem.
wow, I think it had to be 6 or 7. When ever she was out front I always watched her. In the back yard when I could watch out a window I would otherwise, whenever she went outside so did I. No big deal for me.
