Yes, it improves.

Usually around the time they start going to the library/youth club/friends houses after school, so you start to worry about that instead grin

Well for me it didn't. My dss ( 25,23) text me every day to tell me they are fine and my dds ( 14/15) text when they reach school.

I am anxious and that's just that.

Does she mind op? If not what's the harm.

How far does she walk?

Whatever age they start, DS or DD, you will be nervous at first. All part of the parenting process.

At eight I was walking almost a mile and leading a neighbour's spoilt brat six-year-old!

We I know my mum did, no mobile phones so I had to call into to see my granny half way. The main thing is not to let her pick up on your anxiety.

I'm sure they don't resent that at all.

DS11 walks home 25 mins twice a week alone. A third of that down a busy country lane for traffic with no footpath. He texts me when he's in. I do worry a bit but there is no alternative.

My 9 year old walk to and from school with a group of friends (its a 10 minute walk and I have to go the same way with younger dd)it's really difficult but they are good girls and love the independence .does she walk witha friend ?

Nothing wrong in worrying. DD is 13 and at high school, 5 minute walk from us and I worry, mainly though as she talks to the everyone at school and walks at a snails pace so it takes her 30-45mins to get home and she never takes her phone with her.
