At what age .... UPDATED WITH AN INTERESTING QUESTION
... would you expect your child to get herself/himself up in the morning, have breakfast, pack up his/her stuff and take herself/himself to the school bus, without a parent in the house?
Okay, so the purposes of the post wasn't to collect feedback in order to challenge BF ... I won't, not worth it, especially since no harm was done.
But here is an interesting question ... DD never had a tardie, and I think the last time she was off school for illness was about 5 years ago, when she had a sick note from the doctor (rather bad stomach bug). But some people mentioned "consequences", and I wonder how this would work in a CoD scenario.
For example, I'd never trust DD to get herself to school on time without checking. Getting ready, fed and watered, packed up? Yes! But leaving the house on time? Nope! So I wouldn't do it, or only after implementing a plan B (i.e. setting two alarms, leaving house phone next to her bed ... things I also to with DF).
BF obviously doesn't agree. So imagine she would have gotten a tardie ... in a scenario with two homes, how do consequences work?
