Reply to Would you leave you 10 year old at home while you went to work or is that too...

Technology has made great improvements for stuff like this. Install a Canary there is audio and live stream video so you can check in real time. It depends on the child as well. I know some 10 year olds that are mature enough to handle it some that are not. At that age I was out playing all day with no supervision, I'd say being in a house would be safer than running the streets. I agree that now we have become way to protective.
