Ex changed working days
« on: July 19, 2017, 05:03:06 PM »
Hi All not posted for a few years, but this came up today, any advice would be most welcomed.

I'm the parent with care, we have a shared residency order, we have had a mutual arrangement for contact in place for several years problem free.

Just learnt today, his Mum has changed her work days, which means in the school hols, my 14 year old son will be home alone from 9am to 3pm.
She previously only worked Mon Tues Weds, I work Thurs Fri Sat Sun, but now she works Fri as well.

Do you think it's ok for him to be home alone on the Fri 9am to 3pm?

She literally works 2 mins from her home in a day care centre.

What does the law say about a youth being home alone.

Any thoughts?

It really depends on your son. Does he have friends nearby?
Onwards and upwards.

We all have different circumstances but fwiw I'd be happy if my son is.
Two things we give our children: roots & wings

Most 14 year olds would be perfectly ok being left. No actual minimum age in terms of the law but at that age it certainly wouldn't be a problem. Mine were left at that age and for longer.
