Bus Stop Safety
This week's Parent Talk topic.
Each week, our council of experts and smart parents take your questions, give advice and share solutions in this parenting column. This feature will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic.
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a topic and question:
The school bus stop is always a tricky subject. On one hand, you don't want to embarass your child by waiting with them until they get their license, but on the other you worry about bullies, kidnapping and general bad behavior. At what age should kids be allowed to wait for the bus without parental supervision? How do you ensure their safety?
