If you were picking your child up from an after school activity and it was cold and dark outside. And her best friend was leaving school at the same time and you were going about 3 minutes from where the friend lived. and the friend would have to take a bus and subway home. would you offer the friend a ride home???
I would-- however my dd's best friends dad did not. Granted its not his responsibility to give my kid a ride. He is under no obligation to give her a ride. unless of course his kid wants something from me then he's all for giving her a ride. and I knew when she was applying for this school that she would be coming home in the dark during the winter. I don't drive nor do i have a car. and she's perfectly capable of coming home on her own. but who watches a kid walk to the bus stop in the dark and cold and not offer a ride when your going to pretty much the same area???
