When Did (Would) You Let Your Kid Take Transit Solo?
When I ride the Max or the bus, I often times see kids riding on their way to or from school. I've been curious as to when they started riding seeing as how public transit is also a form of busing kids to school, definitely much different than my suburbia experience back in the day. I've been meaning to broach this topic on urbanMamas, and what better time than now especially in light of Lenore Iskenazy's fairly recent post on "Why I Let My 9-Year-Old Ride the Subway Alone"; where her son successfully navigates his first solo trip on the New York City Subway. At what age did your kids venture out solo? At what age would you let your kids venture out solo? Is there a right age for allowing solo trips to school and/or their friends homes?
