I was about 10 or 11 when my parents started leaving me home alone just before heading off to school. I was 12 when they'd allow me to be home alone for longer than that.
14-15 and if they're responsible enough to handle any situation that could happen
My parents left me home alone at ten with my little sister, who was eight.
No it's not. It's not like we were stupid. Don't let anyone in, don't make a huge mess, don't kill each other, answer the phone, unlock the door when mom or dad comes home. It was only in the day. And we lived in the country. No one's ever tried to break into that house since my dad helped build it when he was a teenager. It was fine.
Mom used to leave us(twins) home alone with a 5 year old at the age of 9. It was hell. I couldn't make myself leave my kids alone till they were 14.
I'd have to get rope and a roll of tape first.
13 or 14
I'm 61 and I wouldn't leave my kid home alone!
I'm too close to being on the kid side of this but I would say it depends on the kids maturity and responsibly levels.
It depends on their maturity. But I'd say around 12 years... Although I wouldn't leave them alone for an entire day.
When my brother was 13 and i was 12 we' be left alone for a hour before my mum got in, it wasn't untill he was 15 almost 16 she'd leave us for more than that
Depends on the individual's maturity.
Somewhere between 10 and 20, depending on the kid.
