National School Safety Week 2016 — Open the Door to Leaving Children Home Alone

September 26, 2016

Every year once school starts, working parents are put in a tricky spot. It can be difficult to strike a balance between work hours and school hours, and this difficulty often manifests itself in the form of a couple of hours where the parent can’t be with their child before and/or after school.

During this year’s National School Safety Week, the Canada Safety Council wants to remind parents of a few safety aspects to consider before making the decision to leave their children home alone.
