I am really not sure. My oldest is 9 and very mature in many ways but in even slight crisis situations he freezes like a deer in the headlights. He will definitely have to start responding more quickly when things go awry before I would even consider leaving him alone. And my other two are only 4 1/2 and 2 1/2.

My child is 14 and has autism and mr. There will never be a time that I would leave her alone while I went some place. I leave her in the house while I run to get the mail or something like that. Even though she talks about getting a job and all that. I have told her she has to be 35 before she can stay home by herself.. LOL
I think my kids can handle it...but they won't let me leave them even for 5 minutes!
