Where I’m from the work legislation determines that if a child is over 10 and not feeling well, the parent cannot stay at home on a paid leave. 10yo is considered to be old enough to stay at home (if they are so ill that parent has to stay then it’s unpaid). I realize that cultural norms are different and we tend to have kids be more independent sooner, but does 10yo really need a babysitter?
That being said, I wouldn’t say anything.
