From Our Editors

As seen on Oprah and CBS This Morning, Teaching Your Child to Be Home Alone is a much-needed resource. Written to help children become more attentive to their parent’s concerns, the book explains why parents worry and suggests when most kids are ready for this responsibility. Intended for families to read together, the book discusses what kids should do in case of emergency or become distressed from being alone, and how the child can keep busy.
