Safety experts agree with courts that kids under 10 shouldn't stay home alone
from The Province
A B.C. Supreme Court ruling that found an eight-year-old is too young to be left home alone is being supported by some safety experts who say kids aren't fully ready to stay solo at such an early age. The child in the case, known as A.K., was staying home unsupervised on weekdays after school between 3 and 5 p.m. while his mother, B.R., was at work. A social worker was made aware of the situation and told B.R. that kids under age 10 couldn't be left alone.
