Agreed on the overreaction front. It's interesting how much place impacts culture. Rockville obviously is not far away in terms of miles, but it's a different culture completely when it comes to children and their ability to transport themselves.

I live on the corner of Connecticut and Nebraska, so I see the aforementioned kids heading to Deal on the bus all the time. Kids that live north of me, coming from up closer to Chevy Chase Circle, ride south on either the L1 or L2, get off at Nebraska, and then switch to the Deal bus. I see this every day.

My daughter is currently in kindergarten, but when she's 11 and going to Deal, I would fully expect her to be walking over there or to be hopping onto the bus (like someone else noted, there's not a world of difference between a 10 and 11 year old, and perhaps my daughter might walk herself to school the three-tenths of a mile when she's 10).
