    Too young to stay home alone - night??

    My SO and I are having a debate in regards to me staying at his place and leaving my daughter home all night.

    I say she is too young (15), and I am responsible for her until the age of 18. He believes she is old enough, mature enough and should be able to stay home alone at night.

    I suppose my conundrum is - yes, she is quite mature for her age, and I have no problem leaving her home during the day. She has a car, a phone, dogs, and cats to keep her company, and would probably do fine for a night here and there. She is more than welcome to stay at his place with me, but she doesn't always want to, and prefers her own bed.


    This issue has caused some rift in the relationship with the SO as he thinks I am just making excuses - even when I explain I don't feel comfortable leaving her all night.

    Is she too young or am I being an overprotective mom?
