My 10 yr old son wants to start staying home alone after school when the new school year starts. He will be in 5th grade by then and he'd have to be home about 2 hours a day by himself. He's in that in between stage of needing a babysitter. I'm thinking about trying it but am not sure if its a good idea. Does anyone else have this dilemma?
