Bob, you really do not know anything about me, but it is nice to know that I am in your thoughts.
not an insult, just a reference to some of the death metal sub-genres you post about, cause I don't get death metal.

Question. What do you guys think about this idea?

My 12 year old wants to walk alone over a half mile to the grocery store and buy a bunch if things using cash.

She has never walked to the grocery store alone. She has never shopped alone. For the past two weeks she has proclaimed "COVID is over." She got this from the internet, not her parents.

Her mom said this was fine and was going to let her go without even asking me. But I got wind of it, and nixed the idea.

Now my daughter is slamming doors, throwing things, and cursing me out.

Is the idea of her going grocery shopping on her own for the first time in the middle of a global pandemic a good idea? Or am I being a bad dad by squashing her independence?

two issues
1. She is probably going to have to wear a mask, regardless of her opinion of covid. 
2. Let her out of the nest.   age isn't the factor, it's the maturity/street smarts of the kid.  She seems like she's got a lot of Moxy, so she'll probably be fine.  Just tell her 'don't go in the van unless they have candy'

You make it sound like 1/2 mile is a big deal
I can't believe she's never gone to a store on her own?  Not even when you guys are on vacation?


Although, not you are in a pickle as you said no and your wife said yes


oh and get used to this

This is why you discuss parenting issues as a team rather than trying to be sneaky and letting your kid do it "since he's downstairs and won't notice."

Now my wife is telling me to suck it and fuck off.
