I'm going to the fair today. This is the first year that my 10 year old dd is getting a bracelet to ride the rides as much as she wants. Usually we just go for the shows and exhibits. This isn't a small town fair but it's also not a huge state fair. It's a bit in between. My dd wants to walk around by herself and just check in with us at certain times. She has a phone. I was thinking more along the lines of asking my 16 year old niece to come with us and I'll pay her way and get her a bracelet and they can walk around together. Dh thinks that I'm being over protective and dd is old enough to walk around alone. I'm going to ask my niece to come anyway but I'm just curious as to what you ladies think?
