MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Seems this question is being asked alot on here lately.
Our daughter is 10 1/2 and I havent even considered leaving her home alone but most states have a minimum age a child can be home alone....so I would check that first.
Second, if its a legal age for your area I would definately hope you have caring, trusting neighbors closeby that would be available in case of emergency. As I told another mom, alot of things can happen when young children are home alone and I personally wouldnt feel comfortable doing it with my children til they are at least 13 and responsible. A few examples i worry about.....choking, getting burnt by something, or a burglar breaking in.
