    • The 90s was likely the last decade when it was completely normal for your 10yo to say "I'm going to explore the snake filled creek for toads and crawfish" and your parent's were just like "aight, be back before dark."

    • As someone who was left alone for hours as a kid, as long as you actually parent your kids when you are around instead of just ignoring them, it'll all turn out fine.

    • If anyone legitimately believes that students will actually keep masks on and other things, you are a moron. Not even the adults can do that. Just actually parent your kid and deal with having them around you. You choose to have a kid

    • As a high school student, I can tell you that other students (at least at my school) are DISGUSTING. Those fuckers can’t cover their noses when they sneeze, or mouths when they cough. I’ve been sneezed and coughed on countless times. Not only that, but the usual “I don’t have time to (1/?)”

    • It also has to do with the fact that some kids can't learn very well virtually so they turn to the people around them (parents) for help. If nobody's there, they might fail. (I have two siblings 9 and 12. If nobody was home they probably would have failed everything especially the 9 year old)
