Is it yichud for a niece to stay with her uncle and girl cousins?

Question:

Is it permissible for a 14-year-old girl to stay with her uncle and his 3 daughters (ages 12, 9, and 5) for Shabbos?

 

Answer:

 Thank you for your question.

It is not yichud, since your uncle is together with three of his daughters. Even though it will be at night, and there is a need to have one extra person there to break the yichud, it is permitted.

Best wishes
