Oh that is good news
But my parents more pushed the point that I was NEVER to get in the car with anyone that I didn't know, even if they told me they knew my parents. They said to yell and run to the nearest house. But in saying that, I wasn't allowed to ride my bike to the corner shop (5 minutes away) with a friend until I was in high school and wasn't allowed to walk anywhere on my own til I was 15 and had to walk to work every now and then.
On the flipside, there's going to be lots we have to teach our kids that we didn't have I worry about. Like online safety, not revealing personal details and cyber bullying.
I would hate to have had Facebook when I was at school, it must be so hard to keep up
I won't have to teach them how to babysit younger siblings from 10yrs old..
Or to wind the windows down when I leave them in the car while I go into the shops..
Or about walking their 5 yr old sibling to school at the age of 9..

I wont have to teach them how to go to the local shops to buy cigarettes from about 7yo.
I wont have to teach them to not use sunscreen and just use coconut reef oil.
I wont have to teach them about making sure they have .20c on them to make a call at the phone booth.
"Kids, make sure you stand back from the flames" refering to when my father every weekend 'burnt rubbish' in the back yard. Ignited with petrol

I won't be teaching either of the boys how to mix and serve alcoholic drinks to grown-ups at the tender age of 12.
Having said that, my folks drank responsibly and I rarely drink, so no harm done. But by today's standards, it just seems a little off.
