I have been wondering this too, and I guess that I am more overprotective than I thought I was lol. My son will be 7 in June we live on a corner lot in "town" our road is fairly busy- well at least I think it's busy, even though it's a neiborhood road it is also a connector between 2 major routes, so even though it shouldn't be people use it as such. I don't let him outside alone. I am just too worried he will lose his ball and cross the street without looking, or go with a stranger, he's not shy and doesn't "get" stranger danger no matter how much I tell him. I have been thinking about letting him try it this summer but it scares the crap out of me. It would be so nice if I could let him because he could be playing out in the snow instead of being "stuck" inside with me who is 9 weeks pregnant and feeling bleh. I think if our yard was fenced in I would feel totally different.
