My daughter is in Kindergarten and one of her classmates lives 4 houses down from us. I know the mom and dad and we will go to class activities together. Is it too early to let her play there by herself? Of course we would walk her down there and back. The other times she has gone to play I have stayed with her.
Right now though I am pregnant and would rather just stay at my house and relax. Hubby thinks I should still go and stay. What do you all think?
I think it is fine for her to play at a friends house a few doors down. You know these people and they are not far away if there is a problem. Your daughter is at school without you and I'm sure she does just fine.
Generally, when a child goes to school they are mature enough to go to a friend's house without mom or dad sticking around. My boys do it often.

I agree with Burgh. She's old enough to play there by herself since you know the parents well enough, and it's only 4 houses down. It's not all that different from a play date, just without mom.
If you feel she is ready to play there without you, then I say go for it.
I agree with the other moms. As long as you know the parents and are comfortable with the parents, then I dont see why its a prob. I understand you being preg and wanting to just chill while your tot goes to play. I would prob still go for a little while, and then let the parents know you will be back to pick up tot after a quick nap.
Its so diff out here now its not like when we were kids, so you want to take all the precautions./
are you raising the topic here because your hubby is worried and you're not? can your hubby visit so that he can get peace of mind too? you trust you little girl there because you know the child, parents and home. rest when you need to. happy pregnancy!
