What is the right age to start leaving your child home alone?
Parents struggle with this step in their children’s development and a few states even have laws setting age limits.
Mique also has some other points to consider when debating leaving your child alone:
- How long will you be gone for?
- Does your child follow directions? Will they go by the rules while you are away?
- Are there other kids left home too? How many and how old?
- How safe is your neighborhood?
- Would your child feel safe staying alone?
