Sorry but at 17 was in Army could not wait till 18 to be deployed to South Atantic or NI.
Different times different thoughts I guess.
As a parent of 30 and 25 year olds they stayed on own from under 16 in evenings and when eldest was 16 overnight.
More scared of Mrs duncanb if they b$#@$d about than me.
Your choice when you cut umbilical cord.

Yes, she's definitely got her head screwed on, but did get home sick her first night away and turned up the next day asking if she could take her duvet as she didn't like her boyfriends, bless her. We do get some funny calls from her though checking things like if it's okay to cook carrots and broccoli in the same panb She's settling in to independent life though
We've got the secret birthday trip coming up soon. Only 8 more weeks until the reveal, then her boyfriend is coming out to join us the second week as a surprise. Can't wait to see her face when he walks in to the hotel!

I always feel better when there are 2 together at home, rather than 1 on their own. I would leave 2 x sensible almost 17yr olds at home together.

My older 3 are very sensible (almost 18, 19 & 22) and I have left them at home together for the first time and headed to Florida for 19 nights with the youngest 2. My mum lives down the road and is texting each day to check on them as they want to be independent and look after themselves. My eldest has lived on her own, 19 year old has done a year at uni. I still worry about them though and check on them daily.

I wouldnt leave a 15 year old home alone, 16 would be my minimum age and then only with another older, sensible sibling or a relative living nearby

Same here. Weve left our 14 year old with our daughter at age 18 (shes just turned 19 now), but would never leave him alone.
