    a question

    I have read the following sentence, but
    I do not understand it.
    "should the latch key kid stay at home alone?"
    what does "the latch key kid" mean?

    Re: a question

    A 'latch key child' is one that is given a house key by its parents or guardians and is allowed to be at home without supervision. Such an unfortunate situation sometimes arises with young children whose parents both work.
