Okay, now letting a six-year-old go out trick-or-treating alone is a bit much. It’s dark, and apparently there was no precise route out and back that the kid was told to follow.
However, I was five when I was going to kindergarten by myself.
One day, I went to a friend’s house after school. When I came home, my parents came zooming up in the back of a police car. Obviously, they freaked out when I wasn’t home at my usual time, but I remember being a little surprised at their reaction. Why would they be in a police car?
But still, I was told to never, NEVER go to a friend’s house without telling them first.
And I was back to walking to and from school alone.
It was never considered that I should be accompanied by them, or dropped off.
How old were you guys when you were allowed to go out alone.
