suburbs have privacy and space

ATTRIBUTE #4 - Suburbs' large lot sizes have good privacy and usually have good space around them for playing and perhaps for growing veggies.  It's also usually really easy to park your car near your house.

Being able to grow your own food, perhaps run some chooks can provide a significant reduction in a households ecological footprint due to the fact that diet is a significant contributor to this metric.

Living in suburbia usually means that its quiet at night and it can be peaceful on the weekends.

Typically being a young kid in suburbia can be fun - you can ride bikes and play cricket on the street (until someone yells 'car!').  Being a teenager in the suburbs often starts to become less fun, until you are old enough to get a licence to drive.
