Let's Talk

When I was a little girl, my mum used to think nothing of leaving me at home while she ducked down to the shops (never for more than 15 minutes) if I was asleep, but nowadays, our children would have their kids taken off them if they made a habit of it.

In another scenario, we used to be able to play all day without supervision when we were 6 or 7, but it seems that is all but gone today.

So let’s talk today: what age do you think it’s appropriate to leave kids at home? 10? 13? 15? Tell us below!

  1. I know I feel never but I think about 14 for a little while I do know some kids are left at home when they are younger

  2. For some, they are mature enough to be left alone in the house when they are 18. For all the others, this never happens. They need to be supervised 24/7 even after they attain the age of 30 or 40. Hopefully, they don’t live at home at that age.

  3. It was safe in those days, but things have changed. I would never leave my grandchildren home alone.
