Editor: This summer I saw a 3-year-old boy who lives in the apartment building next door to mine gleefully running down our street without a parent in sight. As I was asking him where he was going his father emerged, looking frantic, and ran down the street after him. Before this it hadn't occurred to me to think of ways to prevent my own son from being able to leave the apartment, but it's been on my mind ever since. Readers, have you found yourself in Lauren's shoes? What have you done?
