9 is old enough to walk two blocks alone.

I will say I did this with a 2 year old on our block. He was walking his sister's bike out to the main road that runs by the house. By the time I caught up with him, his dad came flying out of the house calling for him.

I don't think she needed to assume this woman was being threatening or nosey. Sounds like she was just making sure the girl was ok.

I honestly think it was a bit of an overreaction on both sides. I wouldn't think anything of a nine year old walking down the street, but I wouldn't jump to the thought that someone had evil intentions just because they made sure my kid was okay walking home.
