Safety - Know your neighbourhood
Traffic or stranger danger is a concern for many parents. If your street is busy and unsafe to play along, locate the nearest park or path suitable for activities.
Safety in numbers
Do you know other families in you neighbourhood? Active play together with the kids next door can improve safety through numbers. If there are other families you know, try taking in turns to watch the kids on alternate days. Older children could gradually provide supervision and gain responsibilities as they accompany younger ones to the park or playground.
