Not 8. My 9yos best friend goes to look at toys, DVDs and video games in Walmart while his mum does the shopping, and that freaks me out whenever we bump into him there. (He is a very grownup little boy, but still...) My 9yo gets to go to the local shop by himself, crossing two roads with traffic controls, and gets to take the bus to school by himself if we're having some kind of domestic crisis that means I can't go with them. My 7yo can go on the bus by himself too, but only with his brothers company. That said, in our neighbourhood if they sneezed without covering their mouths with their hands I'd know about it before the end of the day.
