This class, held here at the Parks Office in Schroeder Park, is designed for parents and children to attend together. Led by a St Louis Children's Hospital instructor, the class is design to help parents and children determine the child's readiness to stay home alone and prepare them for this experience. This class will help prepare the parent(s), child and family for the times when the child will be home alone. Parents and children attend together to ensure that both parent and child can determine a child's readiness - physically, mentally, socially and emotionally - to stay at home alone. Families will engage in workshop style activities to address issues that arise when preparing for this experience. A family workbook, family emergency cards, family fire escape plan, parent checklist for assessing readiness and first-aid kit are included. To register, go to St Louis Children's Hospital page or call 314-454-5437.
