When did you let your child cross the street alone?
We live on a rural hwy with little traffic. We are friends with the 3 families that live across the street and we all have kids the same age. Now that the weather is nice they all love to play and be outside together. I have been walking him across the street on the way over and picking him up. Our driveway is quite long and I am usually getting dinner ready at this point. He is 5.5 and quite mature, yet I am not sure how I feel about letting him cross the street by himself. I trust his judgement, but I thought I'd put it to the wise mdc before making this big step!
