Wait, "latchkey kids" are thing?

People just... there are people who weren't at home without their parents??

I'm confused 😳
I just thought that kids going home on their own was the norm.

Struggling to understand anything outside of that.
Legit just thought that this was "growing up"
Some of y'all are misreading this post as me being confused that kids are being left at home, when my confusion is that kids being left at home was deemed so abnormal that a term was created for it.

B/c this seems so regular.
Why wouldn't you give your kid a key for whenever? /r
The amount of people misreading the first tweet & not even reading through the thread to see that they misread it is killing me 😂
