We have a tiny yard, padlocked gate set up as a toddler play area and the whole living/kitchen area overlooking so jasper can come and go as he pleases. Im more nervous.when hes up/down stairs without me.
But honestly and this might sounds super mean, but im trying to avoid jasper getting to know the neighbours kids because they are I think about 4 & 6 and they ride their bikes in the drive way (shared drive way) and foot path and im just not comfortable with the idea of jasper playing out there unsupervised and the kids are out there unsupervised for hours every day. I dont want jasper to want to be out there because I dont want to have to supervise him out there.

In our yard I let them play unsupervised from whatever age they are happy to. It's fenced etc, no pets. My daughters are 7 & 9 and not playing outside our yard unsupervised yet although I let them walk to their friend's house down the road on their own, or up the road to 'borrow' some rosemary from a neighbors front yard hehehe
My nearly 3 yo will play out the front for a few minutes with me popping out to check her (ie I'm loading up the car getting ready to go out & she runs 2 houses down to play on the swing set).
I don't really like it. But our street is dead end, only 9 houses and no traffic except residents.
Today, I Had a 4 yo come over for about an hour & then 5 & 3 year old siblings come over for about 30mins. Not once did either set of parents come looking for their kids. At least once a week I get asked, "is "S" at your house?" or "have you seen 'C'?.
