Hi, not sure if I am posting in the correct section. My 13 year old nephew has asked his parents if he can stay the weekend at his 2 friends house. The house belongs to an 18 year old and his 16 year old girlfriend lives with him. If anything were to go wrong, would my nephews parents be held responsible if they allowed him to stay there?

Legally, it could possibly be the 18-year-olds responsibility. But really what’s. 13 yo doing hanging out with an 18 yo? It wouldn’t be very smart of parents to let the 13 yo stay there for that long. Also, I’d blame the parents if the child did drugs, alcohol etc and ended up in A&E

I agree 18 year olds would not normally want a 13 year old hanging out with them. Id be wary of this and as a cm be making notes of this relationship.
