Children at movie theater alone: what age is OK

I think around maybe 12 I'd let my kids go but with a group of friends not by themselves. At first I'd drop them off and act like I'm leaving and go see a movie the same time theirs started, I wouldn't leave the theater without my child.


I think it is ok to leave teenagers at the movie theater if they are with a group of friends. I would not let my teenager go totally alone though.


I didn't go to the movie theater alone until I was 16 and I would probably only allow our daughters to go if they went as a duo or trio.

We'd allow them to at this age and only with their sisters. That saying there's strength in numbers comes to mind.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
