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

My son is almost 9 and he is BEGGING me to be able to go to his friends (walk by himself) to a neighbors house and I think I will start letting him this summer. I didn't let him last year though. All of the kids in our neighborhood start around 7 and go from house to house. It makes me a nervous wreck. I wouldn't let a five year old. I let my 5yo go outside but only with his brother with him.

My mom said that a father was arrested where she lives because he let his 5yo go to the park by himself.
