Re: How old before you let your child........ and why?
I think around age 7 maybe 8 depending on maturity. That is the age I was allowed to do stuff like that and I think it was perfect. Around 1st grade I walked to school with my neighbor who went to the school and could go to my friend's houses a few houses down and we could go a little ways down the block. I think 10 is on the old side.
