For those that live in apartments- At what age did you allow your child to play outside without YOUR supervision?
My son is 8 and right now he is playing outside with a few neighborhood kids. They are going back and forth from a grassy area to a fenced in black top area that is right next to it. I met the mom today and she invited my son to play. She says that she watches the kids from her apartment. From my apartment, I can't see them at all so I am going out to check on them about every 10-15 minutes. Part of me thinks that I should just relax and not worry so much and part of me is "what if". Any advice?
