Kids Are Enough - Guest Post

Contribution by Stevie Kirby

It’s really hard to know when your kids are old enough to leave at home. I mean, I think I’m a really good mom but there’s nothing out there that tells you at what age your kids will be fine if you leave them home alone. My pediatrician said that 10 or 12 is fine as long as they know the rules about not opening the door or leaving the house but my daughter is 11 now and I feel as if she may still be too young. I don’t know, though, maybe it’s just me being overprotective. I convinced my husband to help me do a few things around the house to make it safer like go to for a security system and install deadbolts on all the doors, so that helps a little bit. All in all, though, I just don’t want Dora being home alone and scared in case something happens or there’s a storm or something. Guess I’ll have to get over it soon and let her grow up a little bit!

Thanks for attending Monday minle blog hop, following this blog and i look forward being part of your blog.
My kids are not yet up to 10 or 11yrs . I can leave them alone in the house and cross the street just to get some things. But i must confess i don't think i will leave even a 13 yrs old child alone. Bad things are happening this days.
