I have noticed that a few parents feel secure in leaving multiple children at home alone when they can't find a sitter. Or when they think the time and money spent on a sitter would be too much. Call me an over protective mother, but it makes me very uncomfortable. I live in an upscale area with highly educated parents. I am wondering what age is appropriate to leave a child home alone? What age is appropriate to leave a child alone with a toddler and a kindergartener? Or does the age of other siblings matter?
