what age do you think it is ok to leave your child (children) home alone?
i don't mean grabbing your spouse and flying off to Paris (does that sound like heaven on a stick to anyone besides me? ) - I mean dropping off a prescription or picking up milk. . . just a quick errand - an hour or less of "gone" time.
i have an almost 10 year old and an almost 4 year old. . .and these are the questions i'm pondering.
for the first time, i left my almost 10 year-old in the car while I went into his little brother's school to drop him off. I have never let him stay in the car by himself - ever. he was surprised - but so happy to be old enough for this. I put the window down a bit and locked the doors - taking the keys with me. He was parked in front of the building entrance - in plain view of the receptionist.
but still. . .
alone out there in the car. . .
what are your thoughts on this? how do you decide when is a good time for what? I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences!
catch you soon -
