No! Not just no.... but H... no! (lol)
Quoting MomsTaxiAndATM:No! Not just no.... but H... no! (lol)
That;s my opinion also but many think I am to strict.
Quoting kcangel63:Yes. My oldest is almost 14, but I would let her at 15 or 16.
What if an emergency happened at your home? (meaning fire, flood, broken bone, etc)
Quoting MommyRJ:Idk it would depend on the child.
My parents are big campers and when I was 16 they had to leave me home for weekends. I had a job and chheerkeading events I couldn't miss.
So depends on how responsible they are
I guess maturity is a big factor.
I have tried to watch my children very closely over the years and still ended up with teenage pregnancies.......... leaving them home alone IMO is just asking for trouble.......
