Good morning everyone. I hope your semester is going well.
I have a question for everyone, especially the parents. In what grade were
your children when you allowed them, if ever, to come home after school by
My oldest son will be finishing up 6th grade by the end of my first semester in
. He is a very mature and smart kid. My husband thinks he should
be allowed to let himself in and hang out until I get home from school. We are talking
about 1.5 hrs at most. I'm unsure. I'm sure he can handle it but I have some neighbors who are bothersome to say the least. Another one of our neighbor's kids were latchkey kids in the 6th and 7th grade and these neighbors talked about calling the cops on her. These same neighbors still walk their 7th and 8th grade kids to the bus stop and have a problem because some of us feel our kids are old enough to handle that by themselves.
