We live only a short distance to school, probably only 600 meters but is around the block where he needs to cross the road at the School Crossing. I have allowed my son to ride his bike to school while i walk, he puts the bike away and i meet him at his classroom to give him his bag. But i know he has made it safely. My son who is only 6 wants to be allowed to walk to school by himself. But i think its too young to let him. My daughter will be starting prep next year and i have told him i am going to be walking her to school next year. I also like that sometimes when i drop him off the teacher tell me how he is progressing at school as he has a few issues which he is getting help with. What age do you think its ok to let him go by himself?
