I am asking everyone to ignore any posts from "Cathy". Please do not resond to comments from "Cathy". This person is trolling and keeping the conversation off topic. We can all get so much more insight from everyone if we can all refrain from engaging with him/her. I know it gets frustrating when someone engages in those behaviors, but if you respond you are only giving the "negative attention" this person is looking for. For everyone else, thanks for the input...your posts are enlightening.

Okay, thoughts on why children walking to school would be a good thing: 1.Economic, decreases the costs for the community 2.Physical activity and health-This is an easy way for kids to get exercise and decrease childhood obesity, etc.... 3.Social-allows kids to walk with kids in their neighborhood 4-Sense of community for the parents walking with their precious cargo. It increases the parents awareness of the community. 5. Environmental-helps reduce the amount of emmissions in our communities air and childrens exposure to fresh air, wakes them up and helps them focus on schoolwork and improves concentration. 6. Road Sense- educates kids in pedestrian skills making them better equiped to deal with traffic when they are by themselves and as future car drivers.
