 just curious, why do you not let your children ride the school bus?

Quoting alliesmom112:

ride the bus to school 


right now she is 4 and while she goes to the elementary for Pre-K she can't ride the bus. However, even next year she won't because Kindergarteners ride the same bus with kids all the way up to 8th grade.

Now a days. Nothing. Can't go anywhere by themselves. Back then we could go anywhere.

Just ride my bike arond the neighborhood with really no idea how far out I was traveling. I mean we would ride our bikes BLOCKS away. A completely different part of town. No way in hell though.

Why won't you let your child do this?

Walk the streets. Every weekend and at least 2 times per week, several of us kids from the neighborhood would walk about a mile to a small little convenient store and get a drink and some candy. We also walked up and down our street everyday and we were often out of our parents sight. I was ten years old dong this.

There is no way I could let my kids do that, not even my 14 year old boys and definitely not my six year old.
