Which is why I made the final comment. We live in a small town, but our grandchildren are not allowed into the driveway, let alone out the front without supervision and the oldest is 6! (of course, at that age, I had to find my own way to and from school - mum had to work or we wouldn't eat)

Unfortunately - it is a common occurrence during school hols !
I know we can't, indeed shouldn't, wrap our children in cotton wool but IMO these two are too young to be playing in a busy street - especially when they have a large garden where they would be safe.

One of my neighbours, who has a small front garden, large back garden, and a substantial driveway, is currently allowing her two children (6 and 4 yr olds) to race up and down our street - screaming and shrieking. They are out of her sight and hearing, the road is really busy one and has two others running into it.

If they fell - she wouldn't know.
If they were (god forbid) abducted she wouldn't know.
If they were run over - she wouldn't know.

Who would she blame ?
