I want to know if my 10 year old son is old enough to stay at home alone for an hour with his 2 younger sisters while they are sleeping. My son is very mature for his age and knows how to take care of his sisters, although I would only leave him alone with them while they are napping or sleeping. He also knows not to answer the door or the telephone whle he's home alone. He also knows what to do in an emergency. What do you think?
