There is no way in the world I could trust my 5yr old (nor 6yr old for that matter) on a school bus on his own, even if he was accompanied by an older sibling. He is still so unpredictable at times.
But then I have these memories of riding my bike to school on my own as a kid with my younger sisters in only around grade 3 it must have been and I wonder if I need to loosen the umbilical cord lol
How old is old enough for a child to take themselves to school do you think?? I know my kids are in prep and grade 1 and it is still compulsory an adult accompany them to the classroom - I think end of grade 2 is when you are allowed to drop them off and let themselves walk up to the classroom. SOme of you with older kids might be able to answer this one?
