Depends on where you live and the specific circumstances. Here? I know 13 year old kids that walk from the middle school to the mall and hang out (after school, of course) unattended. That's more than I'm comfortable with, but my oldest is only 11. If she has her cell phone she can go in a different part of the mall than I am in though.

I would let my 13 year old do so only if I was also at the mall so they could find me if they needed me. Not alone.
