Im wanting everyones opinions on what age you think is appropriate to give your child the freedom to be home alone?
I have a 13 yr old boy, he finishes his first year of high school this week and I have quite a busy schedule and lots of running around to do over the next cpl of weeks. I have left him alone for small amounts of time ie 30min to 1hour. Is it ok to leave him for a couple of hours??
Also, what age do you give a child a key to the house? I want to give him independence but worry he’ll loose it and someone will have access to our home
