I take my bub outside during summer by 6/6.30 and we are indoors then after 9/9.30am. Its too damn hot and too much of sunburn issue to have them out mid morning/afternoon.
I would love to have play dates 7-9am but unfortunately most my mummy friends insist on park playing after 9/10am. So its usually just us playing in the park or going for walk down the street.

My kids will play in the yard any time from 7.30am, but I wouldn't want kids knocking on my door or let mine knock on anyones door until 9am.
My kids get up arond 6.30am. I too would be shocked if kids were out in the street before 8am!

But yeah, I don't like them calling out before 7.30 and am glad I don't sound like an ogre or grouch because of that.
And dd is normally outside before 8, we try to leave by 8 so she has to be inside getting her bag and lunch box before 8. I never realised that was frowned upon.

We go outside to play in the backyard at about 7:30. The kids dont scream or yell, they play, talk to me, giggle etc. they havr to be inside by 10am as its too hot and they have fair skin that burns easily, so to burn their energy they have to be outside at that time.
If I didnt let them out in the yard to play, they would be yelling and screaming and fighting with each other inside, so letting them outside is actually the quieter option.
and hey, if they **** off our new next door neighbours, thats fine too - might make them think twice about the raging parties they throw that last until 3-4am every weekend.

I let my kids go out first thing in the morning. So 7am. But thats just out the back yard. If kids were to come around here, I would say 8 is the earlist

9am at the earliest. DS doesn't usually wake up til 7.30am. Though the kids opposite of us are well and truly up by 5am and screaming and playing on our driveway by 6.30am
I think parents let their kids knock on other people's doors at 6.30am so that they can have a shower or relax while the kids are out and about.

Thanks everyone! I felt so mean this morning, like the fun police out to get unsuspecting children.
