Dear Short Answers:
My neighbor has two small children (around 10 or 12 years old I think). When they come home from school every day, they have to wait outside in the front yard until their mother comes home to unlock the front door. Now that it’s getting colder, I am worried about them. Should I talk to the mother? Should I let them stay in my house until their mom comes home? Should I stay out of it? I don’t want my neighbor to think I am spying on her or her kids. Any advice would be helpful.

If you would enjoy after school milk and cookies and chatting up the kids, make the offer to the mom. If you are not willing to help, then stay out of it.
