At what age did you first drop your kids off at a friends house and NOT stay to supervise? What about a party? What age did you think that you could drop your kiddo off and they'd be fine without you there?
I had a b-day party for my DD1 on Sunday. She turned 5, but is a younger kid in her circle of friends. One of the kid's parents dropped him off, they didn't stay. I realize he's almost 6, but it seemed young to me, especially since there were a lot of kids and the party was on a playground which is really spread out. I was worried he was going to fall or get hurt the whole time! The parents didn't just bolt, they did tell me they were going and said I could call if there was a problem. I was just surprised because this is the first time that's ever happened to me. Parents always stay for get-togethers, but maybe because I'm friends with a lot of my kids' friends parents.
