When considering whether to leave children unsupervised, parents must fully examine what type of help will be available to the child in the event of any emergency, minor or major. This is particularly true if the parent will not be in his/her residence or in a location near the child. Parents should not leave children there without someone to contact. Playgrounds are not substitutes for long-term parental supervision.
Children with a physical, medical, developmental or educational need, as well as children with hyperactivity (ADHD), or any other special needs will not be left alone for any length of time to care for themselves. Whether the special need is mild, moderate or severe, these standards should be carefully applied considering each child's uniqueness.
