Re: Leaving kids at home alone sick or healthy?
Well, my 9 year old is turning 10 on Thursday. I do leave him alone to run quick errands (less than an hour). He is very responsible. I would never leave him in charge of his younger brother.
I was once a single mother, so I can understand the pull between your kids and work. It's hard. I hope all is well for her and that her kids return to healthy quickly.
