I've checked with the Mom and she says she is fine with it. I have no problem with my dd hanging around sports/school etc. there is always an adult around. I'm not overly protective that way at all. She gets a lot of leash that way and always has, it's just this 4 kids home alone for 2 hours (I just feel uneasy about it). My 15 yo dd had called me yesterday after school saying that a friend had invited her over before basketball practice. I wish there wasn't a delay of 2 hours before practice on Tues & Thurs. but there is. We live 12 miles away from school too. My dd was calling from the school phone and I tried to call the school back they couldn't locate her so she had probably left. She didn't have her phone so I couldn't call her back on that to ask her if it was alright with her friends parents she hung up so fast.We do know the parents since kindergarten and have for years and years through sports but not well enough to call them friends of ours (if that makes sense). I've checked with the Mom and she says she is fine with it. They seem like decent parents. They have this planned for Thursday too. There r 3 girls and her brother home alone. All they did was watch tv & eat but I just feel 'uneasy' about it. When I first asked if the girls parents knew, she said yes. Then I found out they DIDN'T KNOW that her friend said she 'they wouldn't care'. Well and they r eating their food too. Bet they wouldn't be ok to have them have OUR kid 2 times a week eating their food and what r they watching on tv, I wonder? I am afraid this girls parents don't even know in the first place & 3 girls left alone for 2 hrs 2 times a week and no supervision but maybe they r old enough? Maybe I'm being too overly protective? I know the one girl watches all the shows like gossip girls & pretty little liars but maybe that would be ok when they r watching them they can critique them right? R u or have u been always ok with this sort of thing with your girls?
