Here's one I came up with...
Respection: Having permission to cross the street without the help of an adult. (I coined this term when I was 4 years old, so if the part of speech seems counterintuitive, please excuse me.) Useage: "A six-year-old child should never have respection."

interesting word.. but i have a total different philosophy! my son was crossing a major street (yes, there was a crossing guard) in kindergarten.. i felt, living in NYC, where knowing how to cross a street is such an important part of your life, that he should learn how to do. it was rare that he actualy had to do it.. but the crossing guard did get sick every once is a while.. and he was on his own..

When my children were 7 and 4, their father would always pick them up from school. One day he couldn't find them at the school or at home. He went back to the school to look for them again. Not long after, both my little angels burst through the door, smiling from ear to ear and saying "Mamita, we found our way home all by ourselves!" How could I be mad? I knew they had crossed one of the busiest streets in Ciudad Juarez and I also knew that I needed to prepare them for their father's wrath without taking away from their sense of accomplishment. I told them how proud of them I was and their Papá would be, too, once he calmed down, so it would be best if they just smiled a lot and let me do the talking. It worked.
