Travelling safar distance with one's 11 year old son

Q: Am I allowed to travel for the distance of safr (77 km) with my son who is almost 12 years old (exact age 11 years and 10 months)?

A: If some signs of puberty are beginning to appear then you may travel with him.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
