Is Your Child Ready for Self-Care? FREE Video Program Available!

There’s no magic age at which children develop the maturity needed to stay alone. But there are three signs that your child may be ready.
Does your child:

  • Indicate desire and willingness to stay alone?
  • Accept responsibility and makes decisions?
    • For example, does your child follow your written directions for chores that need to be done while you are away?
  • Show awareness of what others need?

For many children, these abilities can appear between 9 and 12 years of age. Other children need more time.
