What age for letting a child stay home alone?
I know we have done this one before but I couldn't find the last post.
At what age would you be comfortable with your child staying home alone? I'll break it down a bit further too:
1. For a few minutes while you are within sight of your home?
2. For a few minutes while you run to the store?
3. For a longer period of time, say when you have a doctors appointment.
Just curious what others think!
I was 10 when she left me home fir a few hrs after school while she was working.
By 12 i was home by myself all day and babysitting other kids.
My 2older boys are not mature enoug. I think i will wait until haiden is at least 9.5 years old for a few mins while i took logan and vince with me to a store.
For longer i would wait til at least 11years old.
