Missing & exploited childrens website GUIDE to leaving kids home alone

Leaving children at home alone

At what age can I leave my child at home on their own ?

There is no legal age limit for leaving a child on their own, but it is an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk. Parents can be prosecuted for neglect if they leave a child unsupervised ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health’ (Children and Young Person’s Act).
so why the hell did the mcanns not get charged with neglect ?????
How mature is the child?

The most important factor to consider is how mature the child is. For instance, it may be fine to leave a very mature or ‘grown up’ 12 year old alone for a day while you are at work, but not a 13 year old who is not mature. The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) advises that :-

* children under the age of thirteen are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time
* children under the age of sixteen should not be left alone overnight
* babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone that didnt stop the mcanns did it?

Things to remember

If you do leave your child home alone, remember to do the following:

* leave a contact phone number and make sure you can answer it right away
* telephone your child during the day to make sure that they are okay
* leave a separate contact list of people you trust, in case they can’t get hold of you
* talk to your child before you leave about how to stay safe and tell them not to answer the door to anyone
* make sure dangerous objects like matches and knives are out of reach, as well as medicines and dangerous chemicals
* leave clear instructions on what to do in case of an emergency (like a fire)
* tell them what time you will be back, and don’t be late
* set some basic rules about what they can and can’t do while you are out
* teach them basic first aid

Yes it is all well and good but I am afraid Madeleine and the twins were too young to use a telephone and none of the listed suggestions would have been any use either , they were far too young to have been left alone for any amount of time .

I dont know but I think it is very sad for all three of them to have been left like this and nobody has been brought to account for it - now Madeleine is gone . When those twins grow up and realise that they were abandoned - that too will be a sad time for them .

Abandoned would mean their parents never came back, or never planned to come back.

They were left alone at nights. Not that that should be not be treated with the gravity it deserves, but they weren't technically abandoned per se.

exactly and trya not leaving kids home alone means supervising the babies/children and not not leaving them unless they have a adult to look after them

That would be like a prison !! they were on holiday - why not take their babies with them ? Most people on holiday eat together - what a strange comment

baby monitors are not much use at a distance of around 370 feet - no - I would go for staying with my precious children at all times

or fire, choking, or accidental death in the apartment..........

If they hadn't been left alone, this could not have happened.

Guilty.

My OH and three of his Sisters, all under the age of 4, were left home alone in their beds while their Mother went to the local. One of them started a fire, if it wasn't for the quick thinking of a neighbour, none of them would be here today. All were taken into care and never returned. No DECENT human being would leave a child home alone under any circumstances. :cheat:

LEFT ALONE AT NIGHTS. There were 3 children under the age of 3 FGS. Whatever way you look at it they neglected their children and it is their fault if Madeleine was 1. Taken from the apartment or 2. died in the apartment. THey should be held accountable for leaving those 3 innocent children alone.
