Home Alone After School

School starts in one week. Beth is twelve years old. She is in sixth grade. Mom feels that Beth is responsible enough to stay home alone. She talks to Beth about their after school plans.

“Here is a key to our house, Beth. Bring it with you to school,” says Mom.

 

“I’ve got the perfect place for it in my backpack,” says Beth.

 

“Great!” says Mom.

 

Mom and Beth create some after school rules. The rules are Beth will call her mom at work as soon as she gets home; Beth will have no friends at their home until Mom is home; and Beth will have her homework done by 6:00 p.m.

“Will this plan work for you, Beth?” Mom asks.

 

“Yes,” says Beth. “I think it will work well.”
