Just after some tips. I think my kids are old and responsible enough to leave alone at home for short bursts when necessary and am going to prepare them and give them some practice runs so if I do need to pop out alone or with one, we are all ready for it. They are 8 and nearly 7.
So they know fire safety, they know how to use the phone which has numbers for me, DH, next door neighbour and emergency on speed dial.
I have drilled them not to open the front door, don't let the dogs inside, stay out of the kitchen.
Can you think of anything else I need to cover? I don't want to make a massive deal of it or overload them with instructions, but don't want to overlook something obvious either.
