At what age do you think it is ok to let your child out front to play with other kids?

Some children are more responsible than others, so this is a hard question to answer.

I think it depends on the area you live in,how well you know your neighbors and the children in the street. I let my 4 year old play on the front lawn with some kids down the street, these children have come and talked to both my husband and I many times and we've met their parents and they are nice families. We stay in our front yard and garden and chat and keep an eye on her as the children are older. I would never go inside and let my kids play on the street with no supervision.

I have 3 children aged 2, 4 & 8 who all go out to play outside. I started letting my 2 year old out for little while while I watched him until he got used to be being outside playing and learned that he should not wander off from outside our house, now he goes out to play all the time and loves it. I do live in a very quiet area which does help alot and his older sisters keep an eye on him so I would say that all situations are different and you should only do what you think is right for you, one good thing is that the kids get so tired from running round playing that they sleep great at night...!!!!!
