Is my child old enough…?

I was going through some old boxes of letters and found this clipping from a Child magazine from 1992. I have no earthly idea why someone would have given me this sidebar article about parenting twenty years ago, but since it was saved, I thought we could discuss it.

Opinions? Do you wish there were hard and fast rules like this for making parenting decisions or are you comfortable feeling it out as you go?
