Listen I obviously don’t think Kionna should get a mother of the year mug or anything but a little context is needed in this story. Lets start from weak to strongest point here.
Two states away SOUNDS extreme but in reality its not the worst.Going from Virginia to South Caroline is like 5 and half hours drive. Here in South Florida you could barely leave the state in that distance of time depending on your starting point. Saying she went two states away is just a ploy to make her case sound even worse. Its Ft. Laudy to Gainesville distance, not THAT bad if you ask me.
Look at that neighborhood! Its like in Home Alone when they say nothings gonna happen because they live on the most boring neighborhood on the block. Its really kind of a paradox, these safe looking neighborhoods with the picket fence where almost nothing happens and the next thing you know the neighbors getting arrested for child neglect but in NYC you see tenement housing literally being run by little bastard children and out on subways on their own by the time they can walk and read basic english. Im sure this kid knows how to lock the doors and dial 911, which from the looks of that house and neighborhood, probably would never need to call. Id love to be home alone in that nice house.
Kionna’s been criticized enough so Im gonna give her the benefit of the doubt and say she atleast is a somewhat decent cook/can order pizza pretty well. Corned beef hash? sign me up. Breakfast loaded with your meat and potatoes that can fill you up past lunch for sure. Pizza? its like literally the healthiest thing anyone probably eats on the weekend. If you get a nice plain cheese pie its technically vegetarian soo this kids meal his mother set for him is pretty much a balanced diet to me. Not to mention the cell phone check up every hour. Shit sometimes Im too poor on the weekend to order pizza and i definitely don’t get any loving phone calls from my mother.
The kid knows taekwondo. As fas as I know he didnt have a gun where he could potentially kill himself from misuse, but what he did have was the knowledge and training to subdue any potential threat that walks through that door
But most of all its Memorial day weekend. The reason we celebrate is to honor those who served in the military, and guess what, those same kids back then wanted to, no. Had to be a man of the house by 8 years old. And whats more irresponsible, Kid in the safe confines of a nice suburban home with food and technology or at some party that could potentially get violent or risk a child consuming alcohol or on the roads where there are drunk drivers? The answer is the kid in the safe house.
