Once you have completed the first four steps of At Home Alone and have had the necessary conversations, it is important to evaluate how things are going on a regular basis. This includes reviewing the home safety information and plan and updating it as new situations are identified.

The agreement should also be reviewed periodically. It might be necessary to revise the agreement as circumstances change and as your 10 to 14 year old matures and becomes more responsible and comfortable with being at home alone.
