DWP telling single parents 'Leave your kids home alone'

Post by Guest on 11.12.14 16:43

An interesting one from my constituency MP. I wonder if she knew the extent to which she was putting Esther McVey on the spot with this one?

I liked this comment by "Deanne100"

The law on leaving your child home alone
The law doesn’t say an age when you can leave a child on their own, but it’s an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk.
Use your judgement on how mature your child is before you decide to leave them alone.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) says:

children under 12 are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time
children under 16 shouldn’t be left alone overnight
babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone
Parents can be prosecuted if they leave a child unsupervised ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health’.

So why are some people immune?

Someone should ask this MP.
