Do you think your kids should be to go places on their own?

I'm a big worrier so I tend to lean towards waiting until they are older. My oldest is 10 and I'm just now starting to let him go on walks around the neighborhood alone. My youngest is 8 and I don't let him go alone yet. I think the child needs to develop a certain amount of maturity before they are able to go out alone.

I agree! I think it also depends on where you live.
