Is four old enough for boys to camp out by themselves in the backyard?
How often would you check on your kids if they were in the backyard sleeping?
I would be out there with them the whole time
Every ten minutes
Every half hour
Not until morning
*EDIT* Someone in one of the communities came up with the best idea. Since the tent would be set up in the back yard right outside our living room windows, I will let them go out there at their bedtime while I watch TV. I can then keep my eyes on them. When it's time for me to go to bed, I'll go out there and stay all night. Best of both worlds! They can have their 'big boy adventure' and I get to stay with them.
