There are many variables to consider besides age before leaving your child home alone or allowing him/her to become a baby sitter. By answering the following questions, you can determine rather quickly if your child is truly ready:

    • How responsible is your child?
    • How mature is your child?
    • How would your child act in an emergency?
    • How does your child answer the phone or door bell?
    • Does your child adhere to the boundaries and limits you set in your home?

For parents and caregivers who are looking for ways of expanding their parenting knowledge and for those who want to share their insights on parenting, our community-based education options are a great fit.

RCPC offers parenting classes and a variety of groups in an effort to help you connect with other caregivers. Classes assist you in learning healthy skills for becoming and maintaining a strong family. Our parent educators also offer one-on-one sessions for those who want an alternative to a group environment. Please see the button below for our current class schedule.
