Re: How old before you let your child........ and why?

I'm not sure. We have a small park 1 block from us but you have to cross a busy-ish road where a lot of people speed to get there. So I don't feel comfortable letting my 7 yr old walk there right now - and definitely not my 4 yr old who is terrible about jumping in front of cars. I might let my 2 girls start going over there in a couple of years if dd2 will listen to dd1 (dd1 is a rule follower so I know she'd do what I say). Ds I would probably allow to go a bit younger with the older girls if he listens good (he's 2 now so who knows) but probably by then dd1 will be losing interest in that park (it's tiny) and not want to go there.
