Abstract

Children who stay alone while their parents work have recently been a source of concern to educators, child advocates, policymakers, and parents. The latchkey phenomenon will be examined in this paper by a review of current literature. The development of the latchkey situation will be traced, harmful effects based on research will be identified, and education's response to the latchkey situation will be investigated.
