The last 2 years she hasn't been in any camp though and has just hung out at her grandmas.
She's been asking to spend more time at home since she is old enough.
I let her stay home today because she wants to 'tan' in her own backyard.
Question: Do you let your teens home alone for extended periods of time?
Do you monitor them when they are home alone? What kind of rules?
My rules for today (and for anytime alone) are that she can't have anyone over the house when no one is home and she has to take care of the dog.
I'm going home for lunch and my parents will stop by with ice cream this afternoon.
My concern is that 'friends' will stop by if they know she is home (and particularly worried about boys)... not that I have anything to base this on, but I'm still worried.
I figure I let her stay because I want to trust her and it will be a big win in the trust department.
Anyway, I'm getting long winded.
Do you let your teens stay home alone for an entire day or days?
