Police say they discovered 19 children -- ranging in age from eight months to 14 years -- at home alone in Bowling Green for almost a week.

Police say the home didn't have food or air conditioning, and the temperature was about 90 degrees when the children were found. The home also had nine dogs and a cat. Police say some of the children are siblings. Others are cousins.

A neighbor says the parents left last Wednesday, claiming they had to deal with a family emergency. Police say the children were checked out at a hospital, and are now in state custody.

As a responsible parent, it is not appropriate to leave our child home alone, especially if they can’t handle things on their own. Ages that was mentioned usually acts not quite mature enough to handle the situation when they’re alone. They’ll usually explore things that might lead them to harm themselves. And since I have kids under 11, and one is 14. There were times that I have left them home alone, but I made sure that I can still have an access of what’s been happening at their ends. I have registered their smartphones in an application that can enable them to summon for help whenever it needed. In addition, I can also locate the place wherever they are and have the ability to know if their location is safe. If situation needs a medical, fire or police assistance they can quickly reached 911 in our area with the help of the Call Center with complete information.
