RE: This Isn't Kenya: Maryland Parents Investigated by CPS for Letting 10 and 6 Year Olds Walk Home One Mile from School
The problem is with the 6 yr old. 10 yrs old is too young to watch a 6 yr old for that distance. Also depends on the traffic on the road as well. I wouldn't let my daughter walk a mile home with just a 10yr old....would have to be at least a teenager.

We let our 6yr old walk with other 6yr olds and 10yr olds down to the bus stop. But its only about a 1/4 mile and other parents are at the bus stop and its in the neighborhood not crossing roads for a mile.

I would have to agree with CPS. Unless you have or have had a 6 yr old your opinion on this doesn't mean much.
