If you've seen the episode Somepony to Watch Over Me, then you may read ahead. If not, move out now! (unless you like to see spoilers)
In the beginning Apple Bloom was granted permissionto stay home alone. It was pretty hard for her, Big Mac, Granny Smith, and especially Appljack to accept the new decision. I know how that feels. I'm the youngest in my family, and I have a middle sister and an older brother. (We're pretty much the really similar to the Apple siblings) Well, there were places I couldn't go, so my parents got a babysitter to stay with me, and sometimes my older siblings (once they were old enough). One day, I was really fed up of being treated like a valuable jewel waiting for a thief to snatch it. I wanted to show my family that I was ready to stay home alone.
Eventually, after learning the stuff I had to do and safety, I was able to stay home alone. One night, I was home alone for 4 whole hours! And I was alright. And I accidentally saw something scary on TV, which I find horrifying, but I was alright because I did something I love.
It was hard for me in the long run, but I was able to show my family that I don't need them every possible minute and that I can take care of myself.
Hey, how about you? How hard was it for you to stay home alone? Were your siblings or parents bit over protective? Did you have to sneak out to do something? Leave a comment and express yourself below! (but don't express too much)
