I think California has laws too. I just never thought to look because it’s just not something I’d consider, even if the kids were comfortable with it. My parents left us at home alone at a fairly young age, mostly because money was short. My mom worked 3 jobs and my dad was in the military. I remember my dad always told us to stay away from the windows so no one would know we were home alone or else the “police will take you away”.
Sheesh – a razor, stealing and just general chaos. SMH Scary huh?? What goes on at home will manifest in the classroom. How sad for that young boy.
I know, right? I just wouldn’t even think about leaving Rhett alone until he is older for sure. Same here, we were classic latch-key kids of the 1980s, plus having separated/divorced parents. My parents did it back then, but I would never do that now.
