How old were your kids before you were comfortable with them walking to and from school and being home alone for a bit in the mornings and afternoons while you’re at work?
We currently have 4 kids between 6 and 10 going to school and they are walking to and from school but the days I work later, I sign them in to AfterSchool care. Mainly because I don’t want the younger 2 or 3 home without supervision but i’m curious to see how others feel.
It took alot to get to this point of being comfortable with them walking and they have developed amazingly in their responsibilities this year after they started walking. They have a phone we have called the family phone that goes with them when they walk so that if there ever is an issue or a change of plans, we can be in contact.
