If you are anything like me you don't always have the magic answer when it comes to parenting.

A lot of moms ask other moms, their moms, other family members, friends, google and...of course, Pinterst.

I came across the above chart the other day and I found it very interesting because my 8 year old is always begging me to leave him home by himself. I tend to be the "over protective mom". I barley leave him home alone when I get the mail.

This chart suggests I can leave him home alone for 11/2 hours! Is it accurate?
