How old is old enough for a child to play outside alone? Im talking within a 100 yards of our patio (although you cant see it since its kinda around the corner) is the complex playground. I *thought* Cass was old enough.. she'll be 6 in October, and I would walk to the edge of the building (about 100 ft) and check on her like every 10 min or so.. She's been doing this for 2 weeks now, and her mom used to let her play outside alone too.
Well, this afternoon I got a knock at the door.. it was the cops. Apparently someone called them because they are concerned about the child playing alone :roll: So shes devastated she cant go to the playground anymore, but its just too hard to haul all the kids down there, and its really not apprpriate for a 7 mo old or 18 mo old anyways..
Idk, I just think this is rediculous.. I remember playing outside with my friends while my mom was in the house at 5-6 years old.. we'd go 3 houses down to the end of the street and play in the corn fields..
im just frustrated.. and I completely out of line in thinking she's old enough to play outside without constant supervision?
