With regular, unscheduled check-in visits from adults we know!
My husband and I are wanting to go away for a couple days. We need some time, after years of focusing entirely on children, to reconnect with each other. The problem is, we have a lot of pets. Leaving at least the oldest (16 yrs old), and possibly her sister (14 yrs old), at home means they could care for the pets while we were gone, but I'm debating with the hubby right now whether it's okay to leave children that age home alone overnight.
We would have family and friends check on them regularly while we were gone. The kids would be alone overnight each night though.
At what age would you be comfortable leaving your kids home alone overnight? Or, if you have older kids, at what age did you first start allowing this?
