Completely depends on the child. I could, but obviously wouldn't, leave my 12 year old over night. She is very sensible. If they aren't ready at nearly 17 I'd be asking myself why.

Go away and enjoy yourselves

[QUOTE=Twin mummy;14007450 I suppose part of it is that we wouldnt be able to get back to them quickly but My Mil is only half an hour away.[/QUOTE]

Hate to break it to you but my understanding as a parent of teens is that this particular worry is here to stay for pretty much ever 😂

We decided our 15 year old is now going to.a friends overnight. She wanted to stay home alone overnight and is totally trustworthy but I know I won't be able to relax if I left her!

We're the same with our 15 year old who is often left during the day but not at night. So much so that when we go away he will go to his Grannys with the dog (5 min walk away) to stay over and then come back home in the morning.

It's a very grey area but in the unliklely event of there being a problem the NSPCC guidelines that children under 16 should not be left alone overnight seems to be what is used although there are no actual legal "rules".

Yep tbh i.am.not worried about leaving her overnight in the sense she is very organised etc, but my parents who live across town are also away then so I'm worried more! If she's at her friends I can have a good night and relax 🙂

My 16 year old is of to Leeds Fest next week! Im going to be worrying the whole time. She is a sensible girl and I trust her (its others I dont trust 😂 )Also, I cant really say much as I went all over the place, including on a holiday abroad when I was 16. 🙈

They are growing up so fast I dont know where the last 16 years have gone!

We are leaving my two overnight for the first time in a few weeks and theyre 19 and 16! I would never have left them overnight together before as they didnt used to get on, however theyve grown up now and since getting our dog in December DD16 will be happy to spend all day and night with him 😂 so wont bother he brother much.

Totally depends on the child I think. My eldest was ready to be home alone when we went abroad for 10 nights at 16. He hasnt holidayed with us since. Hes 18 now and was at home for 3 weeks last month. I never have to worry about him, he is very grown up and independent.
My middle son is 17 next month and we are leaving him for the first time in December for 5 nights. He wouldnt have been ready a year ago. Hes not as mature and is very forgetful so I worry about him leaving the house unlocked etc. But there has to be a first time and its a good way of them gaining more responsibility and maturity.
