So...where does one begin? And when? Do you start out by letting them stay home alone in the house 15 minutes while you run to the grocery for a minute or take back a video? And when do you start letting them stay by themselves for an hour, 2 hours? When do they start watching their younger sibling. The thought of that gives me a heart attack. I think this stage of letting go is tough because I would never forgive myself if something happened to them.
Anyway, I know it is around the corner, but I just don't know how to start (nor want to for that matter!)
