Were you a "latch-key" kid?

Are you kids? Will they be?

  • No, I wasn't. My mom was a SAHM. My neighbor's son is but, he comes here if he needs anything. My kids will not be.

  • Oh well then yes I was. But I had two older siblings (10 and 3 years older than me) I hope my kids aren't, but it never bothered me.

  • I was! My kids aren't now because they're too young, but since I'm a single parent and I work, they probably will be when they get old enough. Middle school I think.

  • I was, but because I work at home, my kids won't be, unless I have a meeting I HAVE to attend. But my boss is great about working around your life.
