Hi ladies, Dave the single dad here again. (I am being stalked on here but decided to come back because the advice has been great)
So, jenny is 10… yes I know that’s too young right now… but in a year or so, so you think it’s ok to leave her alone for like an hour when I go to the grocery?
She’s a smart kid so wouldn’t try to light a pilot light or screw around in the kitchen…..
What do you think?
I think that once your kid is old enough to babysit, you can leave them alone home. I started babysitting at twelve and was left alone home with my three siblings at 13-14( because yeah...my siblings aren't easy.)
I think most states the law is 12 years old. My step daughter just turned 11 and I can definitely see her being ready to stay home while we ran out for an hour tops every now and then. I will however not leave her with her younger siblings or my LO....
