Child Supervision

Child Supervision


We’ve been getting reports of child supervision issues from a few landlords in our area. I’m looking for tools/best practices in explaining U.S. norms/rules for child supervision to our refugee clients. Do you know of any?

Thanks- Allison, Kansas City, MO

    Laws regarding child supervision vary by state. In Maryland, children under age 8 cannot be left alone for any reason. 8 and above for short periods only. Babysitters must be at least age 13. Contact local child protective services in your area for local regulations.

    Hi Allison- You may find our parenting handbooks useful in explaining the laws and U.S. norms surrounding child supervision. We have one for young children (0-5)and adolescents and they are available in a handful of refugee languages. Best, BRYCS
