    The beginning of the ‘latch-key kid’, of which I was a member. ;)

    they should have talked about this before she went to work,on a “just in case” type of thing. Since I was a single mom my kids all knew to go to a neighbors house until I got home, which was only about 10 minutes after they did. The oldest also had a key to the house “just in case”.

    Yet another ad – is the artist related to you?

    As c.davies asked earlier
    @Debbie Jordan
    Are you being paid for these ads?

    I bet she’s pretty angry with him now.

    Sadly, if a child goes to the wrong neighbor’s house, that child is never seen again.

    That’s pretty dramatic. By the same “reasoning”, he could be snatched from the front yard as he’s waiting for his mom.

    He could’ve gone to Connie’s couldn’t he? Or Mrs. B (I can’t remember her name). Don’t they live close?

    I’d have to remind my son what to do everyday

    Could have been that Elly’s lessons of not talking to strangers came back to bite her. Michael probably avoided going to a neighbor’s house because he did not know them. (Though I wonder how come Lawrence did not invite him over, maybe Lawrence needed to get going to the ophthamologist or somewhere).

    Did she ever TELL him to go to a neighbors if she were to be late? She seems be assuming he would know to do it.
    He isn’t old enough to figure that out. Besides, you can’t count, and shouldn’t, on neighbors even being home!
    When I was a little girl (in the 60s) a friend used to come over everyday after school to “play.” Turns out her mother worked and told her daughter to come over to my house. My mother finally caught on and talked to the mother, since my mother was not free childcare!

    He could go to Anne’s. Elly has more friends than just Connie. Or Mrs. Baird’s (she still has her house at this point).
