I was also lucky that way. No matter how much I played my parents never complained. Don't know how they did it.
During one of her many times regaling my kids with stories about their dad, I overheard my Mum say anytime there was teen/youth trouble in our area she would ask the neighbours if they had heard me playing. She always knew I wasn't involved in anything bad. Well, nothing too bad
I would much rather have my kids, and their friends, bashing and thrashing in our basement or garage than roaming around bored.
