No I do not. She's 12 with a D cup and there are teens being snatched off the streets in our city.
We live in the second biggest city in our state, so yes, pretty urban. Our actual neighborhood is ok, but a really smurffy horrible part of town is less than three blocks away.
I'd have to lock her out of the house to get her to play outside at home anyways. Unless we're at a park, she's at school recess or she's with her weekly group, she has no interest in the outdoors :-\
