Re: At what age should a child be allowed to walk neighborhood alone or with a friend?

An adult should be within eye range of kids even if they aren’t with them. If an adult comes by and asks the kid to go with them or get in their car, will they say no? Probably not,,,especially if they say they just found a lost puppy or kitten around the corner and need their nelp.

@ . My family moved to NJ when I was in the 6th grade.  I remember walking to the bus stop and a strange adult asking me if I wanted a ride...I said no and walked the opposite way.  Things were not much safer years ago.
