Something my boss asked me...
Is there a law / legal age that controls when you can leave your kids at a mall on their own ? I know to leave them at home along its 14.
He asked as 1) Hes not a Kiwi so isnt upto play with all NZ law (dont think anyone is really)
2) He let his 12yr old son goto the mall with his 12yr old mates.
Nothing happened but my boss has since had a "nice chat" with one of the other parents who said he should not have let the kids go and is upset about it all, letting 12 yr olds stay at a mall on their own. My boss did not know no other adults were going to be there or had a problem without an adult not being there.
Is there any sort of legaslation that says you cant do this, or would it be up to the mall operator to enforce their own ruling about it ? (Seeing as its their property and if anything happened to those 12 yr olds the mall would be held responsible ?)
