Is 12 yrs old too young for a child to stay home alone for a few hours? Most the kids around our house do . . . . but some people think this is terrible..... Also, what if they are recovering from a cold and have to stay home a 2nd day to rest .... since they are laying around shouldn't they be OK to stay home and sleep and watch tv for a few hours? What do you think?
