Saturday night Justin and I went to go eat and then met some friends to watch the UFC fights. Well when Justin told our friend we would meet up with them later he asked who was watching the boys. Justin told him that Jonathan was babysitting for us and he replied, " Is that legal?"
What?! Was he being serious?
Jonathan is about to turn 14 in a little over a month. I trust him to watch his brothers. They mostly just sit in the living room and watch tv. Actually I think the little ones mind Jonathan more than they mind me! Ha! Plus it's not like we go way across town. We always sta'y pretty close to home and I always call and text almost every hour to check on them. I raise my boys right and they know how to act. I trust my children. Also I believe this is also teaching Jonathan to have some responsibility.
I was 11 when we used to stay home by ourselves after school until my parents got home and during the summer. I also remember babysitting around age 13. So what do y'all think? How old were y'all when you first stayed at home alone? At what age would you let your children stay home alone?
Hope y'all are having a great Tuesday!!!
