Only you know how responsible your son is to be left til you get home. Would he know what to do in an emergency?
I’m sure most of us have left our children on their own for an hour at that age, I have. I don’t see him having the house to himself til you get home a massive problem, just be aware that Chilren’s Service do say that children under the age of 16 should not be left alone at any time. It doesn’t say that you must not leave them alone. But again only you know if he is mature enough, if you are confident in him to be letting himself in without a whole bunch of friends to boot …
