My kids are 8(boy) and 5(girl). We met our new neighbors and there are a ton of kids! They all play outside together. The kids range from 5-12 and there are 11 of them, including mine. The older kids actually watch out for the younger ones pretty well too. Also, it's a very safe, quiet neighborhood.
I'm wondering when is a good age to let mine play with them without me outside too. I'm the only mom outside regularly. The others peek on then from inside regularly.
I trust my 8 year old now it's my 5yr old that I wonder about.
