With all the creepy people around I really haven't let my children do too much without me. It just got me thinking about what ages they should be to do certain things. I know a lot depends on the child and their maturity but are there guidelines?
At what age do you let your children use a public restroom alone?
At what age do you let them walk or ride their bike around the block by themselves?
How old should they be to run across the other side of the store to get something for you?
At what age would you let them stay home alone?
I just realized that I haven't thought past the ages they are now and would have no clue on when to let them do what. Do you just get a feeling when the time is right like the motherly instinct that has always guided us?
