That will be hard... At this age, I think I don't dare place them at home unattended, unless they are matured and don't play with fire, or climb out of windows.

Heard of the case of a fallen kid. :sad:

I'm also tempted to let my P3 DS to stay at home after school. Reason being, he usually stay back after school for CCA etc 4 times a week. He's only left with 2-3 hours which I think is better spent resting at home and doing his homework.

Do you think having security camera will help?
