    Default am i over reacting?

    dd had a play date at a friends today. she is 5 ,friend is 5 . get dd into the car and ask her to tell me everything about her day. she tells me they went for a walk. i ask with who. she says herself, friend and friends 9 year old sister. ask where and as we drive she shows me. it was about 10 houses up,crossing 2 roads then a few more houses around the corner. i feel so mad about this.

    It would depend on the area tbh. If it was from where i am now I wouldn't have a problem.

    Given this - hell yeah this would be a total deal breaker.

    Yeah, no, you're not over reacting. I have just let my 12 year old start walking to the shop himself (one street away, no crossing roads)...but I woudn't let him take my DD1 (5) with him.

    A 9 yr old dosn't know how fast things can go wrong. I'd be furious. Definately not overreacting at all.

    You're not overreacting BUT how well do you know the mother of your daughters friend? Have you discussed this type of thing? You obviously trust her implicitly... Enough to leave your 5 year old there without you yes?

    Is this out if character for the parents of the other girl?
