11. Thrive. Get your kids used to public transportation early. If your part of the epidemic and spend your evenings as a private shuttle service for your shortys, this is key. By age 12 children should be able to take a bus to baseball practice. Do a couple of dry runs with them of course. Save some notes of land marks and important streets into their phone. If they want to play rugby, an instrument, AND take dance class then they must carry some of the weight. You will raise independent, confident, young humans.
In Chicago and most other large cities you can acquire a Student Reduced Fare card (Ventra in Chicago). Students 20 years and younger ride public transportation for $ 0.75 from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. It makes me so happy.
