Default How young is too young to go to the mall by yourself? - 12-14-2009, 12:17 PM

Should 11-year-olds go to the mall unaccompanied?

I read this blog, and was a bit shocked. I mean, eleven years old is far too young in my opinion to go to the mall alone. A group of fifteen year olds would be alright, but eleven is too young. I don't think there's a huge risk of being snatched, but there is a risk of them being set upon by bullies, or of getting into trouble. What do you think?

By the way, I went to the local mall by myself at age fourteen, but I was a mature fourteen and my parents taught me from a young age to behave myself in public. They wouldn't have allowed me at eleven tho.
