So basically as the title says, what age were your little ones when they played outside alone? Did you still supervise through a window etc.?
My DS is 2.5 and I am starting to let him have free play outside by himself but I still keep a very close ear out for him/watch from the kitchen window etc. Our yard is also completely enclosed and we have very yappy dogs who will alert us to anyone even walking past lol
Is this ok? I know times have changed so much. I remember me and my brothers playing outside with no adults from a very young age and loving it!
My son loves being outside, it's literally the only time he wont ask for a million things and Chuck tantrums etc.
Give him a truck and a shovel and he's set!
