SD and DS both have activities that they ride an activity bus home from, but not on the same day. The stop is further than the regular bus stop. SD's day conflicts slightly with younger ds's baseball. DS walks home alone and has. SD just started an activity. BM and i both told Dh SD isn't allowed to walk home alone, nor should she be allowed to wait alone at the stop. One of is HAS to be there. He doesn't understand why not. SD is a year younger, but probably more mature. I am over thinking now. Does gender play a part in your rules? BM agreed with my decision it was ok for DS to walk. So this is totally gender biased.
I feel bad kinda. I remember saying i would never do the gender thing to my children. (I would still stock with bm's rules as SD isn't mine.) It makes me want to say that it is ok but I really don't feel comfortable with her walking home. Am i turning into my parents?
