    Such an interesting thread. I’m an only child and my mum ran a small business that required both my parents to travel. By age 12 my parents were leaving me home alone for long weekends nwhile they worked. I was also babysitting other children by that age. I was a pretty mature kid and was under strict instructions to only use the microwave. Plus we grew up in a small rural town where we never locked doors and I knew all my neighbors really well.
