Is 10 years too young?
My 10 years old is begging me to leave him alone in our apartment while I go to activities with my little guy(6). The thing is I feel unsure about leaving him alone and not because he doesnt behave but I am scared an emergency comes up. I do not know any of my neighbors to ask them to keep an eye on him. When I take my little guy to his activities it takes about 1.5 hrs to go back home. While he is a well behaved kid I am just paranoid about something going wrong and him not being able to defend himself. Our appartment is very secure. Please let me know if you are in the same boat or if you were.... how did you do? I feel bad for him, cause I know he wants to be more independent but its the “what if” that kills me..... I am toooooooo over protective and I hate it cause my parents were like that too and I used to feel traped.
