I am watching "Leave It To Beaver" right now, and GUESS WHAT??? The Cleavers parents were supposed to be really responsible parents, right? Model parents that others thought were unrealistically perfect? And Beaver is about six years old, right? Well, his Dad went golfing and his Mom went grocery shopping and LEFT HIM HOME ALL ALONE! This was no weird circumstance; it appears to be perfectly normal for them.
Can any of you even IMAGINE leaving a six-year-old home alone while you went to the grocery store??? Are we overprotective, or were they unrealistically unconcerned back them?
