Would you leave your 15 year old daughter at home for a week by themselves to go on a trip with your new boy/girlfriend?

Are you crazy?, that thought would never enter my mind. If it's my son though, I would. One thing though, he must not have half naked chicks running around my house, they must be fully naked. devil

No way, a 15 year old, son OR daughter , I would not leave alone for a week, are you crazy?
Think of all the things that could go wrong, like the house getting burned down or wrecked from party gate crashers!wow

Re: leaving children home alone
When I was 15, if they left me alone, my boyfriend would have moved in for the week. But every 15 year old is different.

Re: leaving children home alone
No.

Regardless of what they themselves may think, a 15 year old is still a child and needs to be regarded as such by their parent(s).

once sh-t hits the fan and police arrive,it's criminal child negligence no matter the situation-because the custodial parent is legally liable for any crime,injury,property damage and possibly non-custodial one as well.you could really wreck any trust between the parents by acting indifferent to him/her,by hiding it.you would need the child to lie about it also.

ends up in reassessment of custody.

Re: leaving children home alone
my son is 16 and i'd be concerned if he'd eat on time, go to school, do homework, stuff like that, if i left him alone and without any supervision for a week.
i have no doubt he'd bring his girlfriend and his mates, so no need to worry about that laugh
i might even give it a try this summer...and hopefully still have a home to come back to laugh

Re: leaving children home alone
no way can't happen. don't want to know the result of that so I would never take that risk. the thought of it scares me. (don't have a 15 year old at this time though)

I hear you! thumbs up

Have done it in a past. With no problems. Even didn't need to clean house and, a meal was made for us to have after our trip.

If children are brought up with a sense of responsibilities ... why not.

I do believe at age of 15 they are not a children anymore .... they are more like young adults and have to act accordingly by being responsible for their actions. conversing
