Would you leave a mature 10 year old at home by himself for an hour while you went to the gym at 8:30 pm?The gym is about a mile away and the kids club is closed by then. You live in an apt on the second floor so there’s no other option to work out.

No. Too late. 4 or 5 in the evening, yes. A 10 year old should be on bed at 8:30 or 9.

As long as he had a phone he could FaceTime or Skype me from.

That’s what I was thinking. That’s why I’m hesitant. I usually take him with me to the kids club but we are late after baseball practice and dinner.

Quoting BrittsJade: Only if it was earlier in the day

No. I wouldn’t feel right leaving my son home alone especially when it’s his bedtime.

Both my boys have stayed home alone for an hour at that age. But I gotta ask, why is he not in school at that time?
