What type of environment do older kids thrive in?
We are moving and having to choose btw city and suburbs. I have a 4yo and I know what type of environment I would pick if he were going to stay 4 forever, but what about 6 or 8 or 11 or 13 etc?
What do you wish you had around for an older kid? Wish you didn't have to drive them everywhere or wish where you drove them to was closer? Wish they could wander around on their own in your neighborhood but you live in the city? Wish they could ride their bike to somewhere but there is no where to go? Wish your street were less busy or flatter or that kids did or did not play in it? Wish there were sidewalks? Wish they could walk to school? A bike path? Glad you live in the city and they can get around without you? and so on and so on and so on.
I need the details to make a better decision.
