I have an interview for a job on Wednesday. If I get the job, DS will definitely go to a sitter.
My DD is 11 (will be 12 in OCT this year). I feel she is responsible. Knows how to put out fires, call 911, etc.. I'd also make microwavable meals so she's not using the stove each day.
We have a lot of neighbors who I'm sure would help if she needed it.She is in K12 right now and I feel confidient she could continue to work independantly for most of the work, and save anything she has a problem with for when I get home.
Would you allow her to stay home all day? (The job would be from 8-4 I think).
Dh and I share a car right now because his is broke down. But once his is fixed again (waiting on tax return), he could stay at home with her part of the day. His times to work changes frequently so sometimes he'd leave early and sometimes he'd leave around noon.
Please keep in mind I'm not even sure I want to keep her home. I feel she may be a little too young for being alone all day. There is no legal age requirement for Ohio.
The other alternative is to send her back to the public school here, which is ranked very low. She's ahead of her class so she would be very bored.
