Start letting your child/children stay home for short periods of time alone. Example: walking home from bus stop amd using house key...hanging out at home until mom or dad gets home from work.

Thank you in advance for your replies ladies :)

I'm always home, so it really never came up. At about 14, I started leaving them home while me and DH went to the mall or something.

My step-kids are almost 14 and 15 and DH nor their mom think they are capable of this. Concerns me that SD will be driving a vehicle soon, but can't be trusted to stay home alone.
