ok so my sone is 5.5jyrs old and he is sick(throwing up and fever) my dd has school tomarrow but we have to take her to the class and sign them in. I live in a very small town. doors unlocked, windows open etc. the problem i am having is would it be ok to leave my ds here long enough to take ds to school which is two blocks away from my house? I have left him watching cartoons before while dh is sleeping but someoneis still here. I dont have anyone who can take him as my friends sone rides the bus. just need some advice. thanks

No! He is only 5, and you never know what could happen in those few minutes that you are gone...

It depends on how mature he is and how comfortable you feel doing it. I'll prolly be bashed for this, but oh well. If you think he can handle it, then do it. Maybe you'll get lucky and he'll sleep in. I leave 20 m/o dd sleeping in bed to take ds to the bus stop almost daily. She rarely wakes before I get back.

i wouldnt personally... kids are not legally allowed to be home alone at that age either.

Never leave a child that young unattended. No matter how long it is for!
