Home AloneIs your child prepared to stay home alone? Does he/she know what to do in case of a fire? If there is a stranger at the door? When friends come to play? When using the Internet? If they get hungry and want a snack? Be sure that you have the frank conversations and all of the necessary tools in place so your child is well-equipped to stay home without an adult. Home Alone is taught by Sheryl Nefstead, ISD 279 teacher with significant experience teaching teens safety and home life skills. A highly-skilled Maple Grove police officer will provide your family with Hennepin County guidelines, various safety considerations and a child-safety checklist. This class will help your child/ren feel comfortable and provide you with the information you need to assure that your family is safe in all settings, but mostly when you prepare for the big step of leaving your child home alone.
