What is the right age to leave kids home alone?

Replay the Saskatoon live chat.

It's summertime and kids are out of school. Some parents have to face the decision of whether or not to leave their kids at home alone -- from a short to a long period of time. 

Recently, a woman in the U.S. was arrested for allegedly leaving her nine-year old at a park while she went to work. 

Saskatoon Morning asked its audience the following questions: What do you think is the right age to leave your kids home alone? Do you think teens should be left alone? Did your parents leave you alone?
