My mother-in-law potty-trained my twins and forbade us from using pull-ups. We’ve had nightly accidents ever since but she won’t budge! Will we really ruin everything by using pull-ups at night?

What are the things that you want to do with your kids before they leave childhood behind? I feel like I can write this list with authority now that I have almost grown kids. Most of these things my children have done, except for my oldest who still has not mastered the cartwheel. It is something that makes me laugh every time he attempts it.

All that said, the decision to leave your kids alone is obviously a very personal one and depends on factors such as their maturity, their environment and your basic comfort level. As well as other issues like whether you should put the oldest kid in charge and your kids’ ability to follow safety rules to the letter.
