Re: Opinions please abuse or different parenting?
I completely agree! It also annoyed me that it said that a first grader can but should be accompanied by a parent to walk to school. I walked to school in first grade and I definitely was old and mature enough to do it.
Well. I have to say. The ages in the above post are reasonable BUT it annoys me that someone has spelled that out in a law somewhere (even if it's not in the US.) I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because I've met some 7 year olds that seem more responsible and capable of being left home or unattended than some of the 18 year olds I've met....
