Want to read something depressing? Here you go.
I know I always like to leave a twelve-year old child alone in the house for a couple of weeks. Seems reasonable.
But wait. There's more. Don't think it's easy to figure out what to do with the child. He actually likes it with the person who leaves him for weeks at a time. May even be the best thing for him. Depressingly.
Ever think that some people have very little chance in life from the get-go? Even if, as seemingly here, they're incredibly resilient?
