From “Ask Kit!”:
Q: Is it legal in the state of california to have a 12 year old and a 14 year old stay in a seperate room down the hall from parents?
A: I don’t know California laws, though I’d think it would be easy to get the answer to that one either online or by calling and asking. Regardless of whether it’s legal or not, it doesn’t sound like a good idea to me. Kids need supervision, for their protection and safety more than anything. As an innkeeper I don’t think I’d allow that arrangement.
What’s your story behind this question?
Expanding my comment form the original Q&A post:
With the omni-present connectivity kids have today, I think it’s best to not allow them to be left alone in your guestrooms. While a B&B is safer, by virtue of the owner/manager being around and knowing their guests, there’s too much at stake to take a chance. As of mid-year 2017, child abduction for sex trafficking is on the rise and you don’t want to have that even possible from your inn.
