..............walk to places on their own (well with their friend anyway)? Am struggling with letting dd1 walk anywhere on her own - she is just 10. Help - this parenting business is getting way too hard!
I'd start letting her go now. She'll be off to secondary school next September, I'm presuming, so you don't want to leave it too long. It is hard and for the next few months you will be a nervous wreck, but it soon gets easier! I know, I've just done the same with dd in readiness for starting secondary last week!
