Poor kid at the bus stop #edit#

His parents send him out to wait for the bus just after 8, the bus doesn't come until 8:40. It's 19 degrees out will the wind it's 8. He's wearing a jacket with a hood. But geeze, I feel sorry for him. I just noticed this week. It's been freezing all week. I just want to tell him to come inside and watch cartoons till the bus comes.

Thank you ladies, if I see him that early again tomorrow, I'm going to ask him a few questions. I don't want to be nosey but I also feel bad.

I don't think the kid should be inside waiting for the bus. For all we know he may choose to leave at that time.

I've got no clue. I see him walk from down the block, I'm not sure what house he lives in. I was thinking maybe someone drops him off on their way out of town, but then why would they drop him more than a block away only to drive past the stop? Weird. He looks sad:(

True. But he looks sad and cold. Not like he's happy to be out there. If its whipping wind and 19 degrees out, I wouldn't let my kid wait over a half hour in this cold. I guess I'm a botch like that!

Around 7 I'm guessing, he's waiting for the grade school bus so in that range.

Maybe he wanted to leave that early. I always wanted to leave early for the bus. Some days it was due to me wanting to walk, so I had to sneak and walk the 2 miles to school with my friends, lol. Some days I wanted to talk to someone at the bus stop and others I just wanted to.

How old is the child?  I would call the school and tell them see if you can find out his name from one or your kids or the bus driver. 

Just saw you posted 7 I would be either calling the school or the cops if the temperature was that low he shouldn't be at the bus stop that long in the cold.

I just feel like I'd be a creeper, and I'd hate to have his parents find out and get pissed at me you know?
