Well, sadly the days are long past when it would be safe to encoyrage kids to run around unsupervised and stay out late. Isn't the challenge you face to get all this in perspective, though ? Discuss the risks frankly and calmly with your child, as an alert and intelligent child is the best protection available. Its fair enough for her not to play outside the complex without nsupervision. She should be OK at a friend's house IF that child's parent is there and known to be careful. But again, if your child (a) learns to swim, and (b) learns about the risks of a pool, she'd be safer still. Going to the tuck-shiop shouldn't be a risk would it ? I guessthe central iss is that YOU can't protect her completely at all times, however hard you try. But if you help her to protect herself, she ends up far safer
