I let my boys take the RideOn home from their school starting in 3rd grade. Although they were not supposed to be alone until 5th or 6th grade one of my sons decided, after accompanying an older brother a few times that he knew what to do. So he tried it by himself and fell asleep! Waking up in Wheaton (although he didn't know where he was!) he called me from a payphone and we found a nice lady nearby who could tell me his location. Amazingly, he was non-plussed! Many parents I knew disagreed with my decision but, ironically, would allow their 5th graders to see R-rated slasher movies! I think protecting my son's soul and sensibilities is even more important. Should we call CPS if we know a child has seen an "inappropriate" movie?
