Back in the 80’s, we came home from school to an empty house, let ourselves in, made ourselves a snack and went outside to play until Mom or Dad got home. But nowadays, some nosy neighbor will call the cops or CPS on parents for daring to leave the precious little snowflakes unsupervised. I feel sorry for today’s parents and today’s kids. They live under the constant scrutiny of a big brother police state.
