Recently there has been lots of debate about the amount of freedom we give our children to play outdoors, walk to school etc and questioning if we should let our children be "Free range".
How much freedom do you give your children to play outdoors without supervision?
Would you let them walk to school on their own?
When is the right age to start letting them do this?
What effects is not letting our children being independent and play outdoors having on them - if any?
It would be great to hear your thoughts on this!
