I wouldn't at 8. Maybe at 11 or 12 depending on maturity level of my kids . and definitely not more than a couple of hours.

She left him home alone all weekend. This is not someone who left their kid home for a little bit to run to the store etc.

She left him for a weekend. I wouldn't leave my 14 yr old in charge of my 10 and 9 yr old for a weekend.
