I sometimes wonder how school kids in foreign countries commute to school.

I hear in some countries, parents send their children to school in the morning and pick them up again after school everyday. whoa:o

In Japan, children generally go to school on their own, usually with their neighborhood friends. Of course, not all the children attend the public school in their local community. It’s kinda common to commute by trains and buses to the downtown private school, too.

But even in that case, they are scarcely accompanied by parents.

How was it like when you were little?:)
