I see so many people these days not allowing their children to do the things we did as kids. For example I remember when I was 7-12 going off to the park, walking to and from school, walking to friends houses, going to the local store to get bread and milk for mum. Nowadays some parents are saying they won’t allow their children out of the house alone until 13-14? I don’t believe the crime these days is any different to back then, I think with social media now we are more aware of what’s going on around us. So my question is, what age would you allow your child out of the house alone and what are your reasons?
