I live in a small town and the gated community center with playground is right next to the police station. I want to start working out at the gym inside while my kids (6 and 8) playplay outside. I was a police officer so they are very aware of what to do with strangers and how to react to different situations. Are they old enough for me to do this? The town is small enough that everyone knows who the kids and I are. The only exit is far enough away that it would be noticed if they were leaving with someone other than me. If they are still too young what age is appropriate?
