My parents were ahead of their time with this. My sister and i were not allowed to roam with the neighborhood kids; I still remember being in bed at 9 pm in the summer, when all the other kids were playing kickball just outside our house... It was an abusive household, which is why my parents were so into CONTROL.

We let K be pretty free-range. She wandered the neighborhood, and DID walk to school for a few years... both of which were pretty rare by then.
