Everything is scarier without adult supervision. With no safety net in place, everything feels a little heavier, like it counts a little more. There’s no help available when you are without adult supervision. Mistakes are permanent, and your problems belong only to you. They are perhaps your only exclusive possessions. Anything can be taken away from you except your problems, and nobody’s going to try to steal those. There’s no sense in pretending that anybody’s watching or coming to help.
