Would you leave a 9 and 10 year old home alone for 30 minutes 1 day a week?

My oldest started staying home occasionally at 9 so, yes.

My DD is 8 and not nearly mature enough so, no.

It depends on the child.

 I wouldn't because of the area I live in. There's a lot of trafficking going on here.

Depends on the kids and the time of day. Right after school, probably. 30 minutes isn't that long. Do you have a house phone?

I did when they were that age. Even for a few hours occasionally.

My kids, yes. They stay home a lot longer than that.
