I wasn't meaning you! I think at 10y and over it depends on the child and as the parent you would know your child best and how they would handle a dangerous situation!
but sorry not under 10 that's my thought's anyway
Oh, I know you didn't mean me in particular. I just think maturity goes hand in hand with knowing what to do. That was my point anyway.
I wasn't trying to be rude btw.
The same 10 year old I was talking about (due to her personality and maturity levels) probably would've been fine left alone at 6 years, I just never felt comfortable enough to do it because of her physical age.
Some kids are just like that, they're different from the average child.
