i am digressing, here...

I remember coming home by myself when I was 11 and with my two years older sister as young as 8. Is that not allowed any more?

and i walked several blocks home, alone, for lunch very day when I was 6, but times have changed.

I see you are in Georgia. I live in CT- neither of these states has a hard & fast law about when kids are allowed to be left home alone.
What that does, however, is leave it wide open so when a 15 year old is left alone and something unforeseen happens, it can still be labeled "Neglectful" on the part of the parents.

Leaving kids alone is dependent on the individual child and his/her maturity - attitudes have changed significantly since we were that age.

peace & down the road
