    Re: At what age should kids* be allowed to go out and about** on their own?

    Really does depend on each kid..but a thing,at 7 I was cooking my own breakfast,and lighting the stove(Before pilot lights) and relighting the floor heater. My older sister taught us how to do stuff,and everyone helped keep up with stuff. These days what with helicopter parents,I am surprised kids know how to tie their own shoes. I guess I was a free range kid growing up.

    Sounds about right...
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Not all of 'em. Like I said, I didn't do anything really crazy until I was an adult.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Re: At what age should kids* be allowed to go out and about** on their own?

    I was allowed to walk to school, but then again it was about a mile away from school. Not too far for us to walk. This was junior high of course. We were about 13 and 14 (me being the older sister and I stayed back a grade). When we were younger, we were allowed to play outside as long as we were in the yard. Of course it was a close knit neighborhood. A lot of my friends were around and the neighbors watched over us. We lived on a dead end street during our teens and our parents had to parallel park their cars so the others could get by. We knew our neighbors and had friends. My sister had a job and started to drive. This was of course before the internet craze and social media craze.

    I would think that parents should wait till the children understand the dangers of going out on their own. They should teach their children early on about strangers not just in person, but on the internet. They should let them know that being on their own doesn't mean they can be out of their parents reach. They still have a responsibility to stay in touch with their parents. I can't say what age, but probably at least 12. This is my opinion though. I only have fur babies and a nephew.
