    Hi,

    Take a look at this https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/in-the-home/home-alone/

    What about your partner, is he not able to look after son for a little while?

    Thats called emotional blackmail. I would leave him and at same time say he is welcome to report it . Its isnt a crime to leave a 13 year old at home on their own for a few hours . He is a teenager  and is for a few hours . No different if he went out with his mates for a few hours . Also its 2 hours max as he would still have to get home from school etc so would be even less

    what if your son goes over to his friends place for couple of hours? i would have thought kids that age like doing that.

    Why can’t he just stay home and invite a friend or not and not tell his dad.What’s the big deal?

    You can leave children of his age as I’ve asked social services myself .as my ex thinks he’s clever and trys this with me as long as there not left overnight he’ll be fine.
