1.  Are you grouchy?
Inspired by a today show segment this morning, The actual youtube clip I got from my sister a couple weeks ago, Lol:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3v98CPXNiSk

2.  What kind of videos do you like if you rent them?

3.  How do you like your eggs?

This is my city's curfew laws. 

"has a daytime and nighttime curfew for minors under 17. The daytime curfew is from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on weekdays when school is in session. The evening curfew is from midnight to 6 a.m. Monday – Friday, and 1 to 6 a.m. Saturday and Sunday"

I don't care what happens in your hood, Spring. By upper elementary here, it's quite common for groups of kids to be without direct supervision in movie theaters, public parks, skating rinks, public swimming pools, etc. very few people (none that I know of) prevent their kids from doing normal everyday things for fear of stranger abduction. If you want to talk risk, the most irrational thing I have ever done was hand my car keys to my 17 year old and allow him to start driving himself and his 14 yr old brother to school everyday. That actually carried a real statistical danger. But I did it anyway.

In the military world 10 is a very important age. That is the age when you are given an ID card.  With that card comes freedom to go places without a parent.

I had friends that did. I had no need as I knew my child could stay home by herself for a couple of hours.

I've found that if you offer a high enough hourly rate, you can find someone to do almost anything.  Maybe your friends are just cheap.

"All I'm saying is that it isn't a necessity to leave middle school students home alone." --------- Oh, so it is not a need after all. OK.

This was Geschichtsgal. I never said that.
