Home Alone: Is Your Kid Ready?

4 of 6

3. Your Child is Familiar with Safety Skills

A child who is ready to be at home on her own knows what to do if there's a fire and how to contact 911. She knows what to do if she's being followed, knows not to enter the home if something seems amiss, and knows an alternate place to go. She doesn't play alone outside when you're not home.
