I don’t know if I agree with this. My parents had to work when I was growing up so we would sit and play by ourselves or with other children until our parents could come and pick us up at 5:30pm. I won’t be doing that with my children but I think it is a bit unreasonable when you have two working parents to expect them to be on time every single day, and then to fine parents when they aren’t. This is particularly harsh if the reason they are late is because they are working extra hours to make ends meet.
