Leaving 17 year old home alone for a week?
A couple we know went to Mexico this week and left their 17 year old daughter home alone. This is something I cannot imagine even considering, and it sounds like it could be illegal since she is a minor?? They live out in the country, and the nearest relatives are half an hour away. I am wondering if we are the exception, or if others would do the same thing - my husband and I are shaking our heads!!!
