How old before it's okay to leave them home alone?
So I have a question for other moms...How old do you think a child needs to be before they can be left home alone while your at work? Or even maybe 2 hours?
The reason I ask it because DSS just came to us from his BMs house and first thing he said was Grandma got a job so I stay home alone now!!! O.o He just turned 11. DH is VERY mad! DSS is NOT mature enough to be home alone!!! NO WAY! Last time I left him home alone for 20mins he set a plastic plate on fire...it was an accident...but that's all it takes is ONE accident! So DH is going to talk to the lawyer about us having him while she is working and no one is at their house to watch him.
What do you guys think??
