I had read recently that once kids are old enough to tell time they are old enough to be given some freedom and should be okay to play outside alone. Does that sound right to all of you?
My son is almost 6 and pretty responsible (as he can be for 5/6). We have a park right behind our apt. (I can see it from our little hallway). Should I be able to let him go there for 30. min. alone?? He has a watch and can tell time very well. I have always been very close to him (or some may say clingy, lol) and want to give him freedom but not too much!!
What are your thoughts????
