 ...... Stayed home alone for an hour or two?

 

Me, I was maybe 14 or 15 and it was like when my parents went grocery shopping.

My SIL is having a fit because her 14 almost 15 year old does not want to stay at my house for an hour till her mom gets off work. I told my SIL why not I do not understnad the big deal its for an hour and I literally live like 3 blocks down the street! She is just very not protective so to say but just doesnt want her daughter to do anything with her up her butt. ERRR But her parenting is another story!! LOL

I was like 10. and then when I was 14, my parents left me and my sister(16)and brother(11) for a week while on Vacation. If you trust your kids I dont see the big deal.

I was 6 and my sister was 4. My mom and dad had to work. We were very independent and it was just a different time back then.
