Last week I needed to run my daughter up to the school, but he needed to wait for his ride to soccer. I was going to be gone less than ten minutes and his mom was on her way. He bawled his head off...so I took him. But GEEZ! His Mom had to leave him home alone long enough to run a family home in her truck (six blocks) He fell apart then too. She had to leave him, there was not enough room in the car for him too.
Is this something she should be concerned about? He has always been like this, it's not a new thing. Most kids in our area can stay home for up to an hour without any problems. My daughter loves to have the house to herself.
How about your kids? Do you feel comfortable leaving them home alone? Do the kids feel comfortable?
