Your Kid Shouldn’t Cross The Street Alone Until They Are 14!

Your kid shouldn’t cross the street alone until they’re 14?  That is what a study from University of Iowa is saying and the reason they say this makes sense!

If you have a 13 year old (or 12 or 11 year old) good luck trying to hold their hand for safety the next time you cross a street!   I’m sure that’ll go over great! Please sens the sarcasm!

According to a new study out of the University of Iowa, your kid shouldn’t cross the street alone until they’re FOURTEEN. That should be sweet, sweet methadone for helicopter parents.

The researchers say until they get that old, they don’t quite have the motor skills or visual judgment skills to cross a street perfectly safely.  Yeah, even 12- and 13-year-olds can have a little bit of trouble judging car speeds.

Try the “better safe than sorry” when you try this, that always works… Again, sarcasm!
