my stepson had an odd fascination with cleaning brushes as a little boy, so his stocking was always filled with brushes and dusters for the few years he was into that. my husband and i always laughed shopping for his stocking on the grocery store cleaning aisle. he was also really into vacuum cleaners and santa brought him more than one of those, as well, real ones, not toys.

I flew the first time by myself at 5, on a nonstop flight from Jacksonville to Atlanta, about an hour. As many have mentioned, there is unaccompanied minor service, and parents ARE allowed to see their child all the way to the gate, so I would let my son fly at about the same age by himself if the situation arose. My early experiences flying solo helped make me a capable independent traveler, so when I had to fly by myself to Paris at 17 I was more than able to handle myself, navigating two different airports and even tracking down a lost suitcase in (very bad) french. I think allowing your children to accomplish things like this on their own breeds confidence and independence.
