Becca77, I think the UK is probably a lot safer than the media make us feel. I have often said that when I was young kids as young as 5 years walked to and from school, and played outside unaccompanied, and nobody thought anything of it. I can remember going trainspotting as an 8 year old with just a similar aged friend, to Wood Green in north London. A journey that involved a 1 mile walk, a bus ride, then a train ride! My parents didn't even have a home-phone, let alone a mobile, imagine that today! Personally I don't think there is much more danger about today than there was back then, but that is not how it is perceived.
Growing older is compulsory, growing up is optional.
