My son is going to be 12 years old soon. I am a single mom with no family here.. I also have a 5 year old son. I would like at some point to begin dating. Do you think it is acceptable for my 12 year old to watch my 5 year old if the 5 year old is asleep? It would obviously be at night while my youngest is sleeping, and I would never go more then a few minutes away from the home as I live in an area where everything is very close. My oldest is a mature kid, he has been latchkey since he was 10 and I have never had any issues. But I feel like him being alone for a couple hours while Im working is different then me going out while his brother is sleeping. So I was wondering everyones thoughts! Thanks!
