    Fun older kid milestones

    Hi ladies, It's easy to find charts for things like developmental milestones as well as age-appropriate chores, but I was looking for more fun milestones for slightly older kids--the kinds of things kids look forward to being able to do once they reach a certain age.

    So what did you or your kids look forward to doing that required a certain level of maturity? And at what age do you personally think that's appropriate? Of course every kid and every family is different, but what is your experience/opinion?

    Things like:
    -getting an allowance
    -using the computer
    -climbing trees
    -getting ears pierced
    -staying home by themselves for a few hours (I know some states have laws about this, but I know I considered it a privilege at ~12 to be home alone for an hour or so)
    -sleeping over at a friends house

    I know there are more I'm just blanking!
