I cannot believe anyone would allow their children to walk to school with all the horrific crimes against children that happen everyday. In Killeen TX a couple of years ago there was a guy picking up little girls - molesting and raping them. The police, the newspaper, the school, the local news were practically begging parents not to send children on foot alone. And still 2 more children were picked up & raped because they were alone. The guy was finally caught.
Here in our neighborhood you see little tiny children out waiting for the bus in the dark alone and/or walking to school or from school alone. The school nearby only goes to 5th grade.
I just cannot get that poor child in Colorado out of my mind. She must of been so terrified. It just breaks my heart.

Neither. I have to drive them and pick them up. We do not get bus service since we live withing 2 miles of school and because of sh*tty drivers I won't let them walk or ride their bikes alone. I would not be comfortable letting them walk or ride their bikes to school if they were alone anyhow.
