Latchkey Kid

(n) a child who must spend at least part of the day alone andunsupervised, as when the parents are away at work.


I randomly found this term, but I love it already. It would have made my life hell of a lot easier when I was writing my college essays. If only I had known that my entire childhood could have been summed up in a single term.
