Re: Opinions please abuse or different parenting?
One of my friends let her two kids, 11 and 9, come home off the bus after school for 3.5 hours alone until she gets home from work. She has prepared snacks ready in the fridge, kids know how to dial 911 or go to a neighbors house if needed. The 11 year old now stays home by herself now that they are out of school. The 9 year old does only twice a week, otherwise he's at a friends house.
