At what age did you feel comfortable leaving your child alone in one room, while you were in another? For example, I left my 5-year old twins downstairs in the den watching tv, while I went upstairs to take a shower. I left the door open, but it's still unlikely that I would hear anything besides yelling from the bottom of the stairs. The shower took about 10 min. I checked on them periodically, so they weren't alone for more than 15 min. at a time.
My husband thinks I should have taken them upstairs and let them watch TV in our room, right outside the bathroom. I feel like they're old enough to be left alone in a room for a while (especially when in their tv-zombie state!)
What are your thoughts?
