..............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!

DD (10) this afternoon had a friend over and they met half way.

DD walks from her school bus stop some days and to and from local library.

We live in suburbia so mix of roads but she is fairly sensible.

My ds was 8, my dd will be 10 next week and she walks to school and round the shop. Neither crosses big roads and are less than 10 minutes walk.

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!
