15. Studies have demonstrated that "latchkey children"
A. have no difficulty in caring for themselves.
B. are at risk for behaviors related to peer pressure.
C. are usually over the age of 14.
D. are primarily children who live in the inner city.
Is A a correct answer.
My kids were "latchkey children," and had no difficulty caring for themselves for the hour or so until their dad and I came home. We were both teachers and got home earlier than most working parents.
However, "latchkey children" usually are left alone for several hours. Those are the ones who are at risk for negative behaviors.
