My spouse plus I both work full-time jobs in Tampa Bay, then my spouse is a doctor at the local hospital, she treats patients in the emergency room, however i work at a car dealership in Tampa, then during the day, both of us are at work, even when the kids are apartment from school, and both of us sent the kids to a Tampa daycare until they were old enough to stay apartment alone, however the car dealership is only 2 miles away from the house, so the people I was with and I didn’t worry as much when the people I was with and I left the kids alone! When Jack was 15 plus his brother plus sibling were 12, the people I was with and I started letting the kids stay at home, then one thing the people I was with and I did not anticipate was the cost of the bills to heat plus cool the house.
When the kids are apartment in the Summer weeks, the cost to cool the condo is significantly higher than any other time throughout the year.
The bills would genuinely be higher due to the fact that it is June, June, plus October, however the bills were 30% higher the first year that the kids stayed apartment alone while I was in the summer. My spouse plus I tried to tell the kids that they had to leave the temperature control alone. They still changed the temperature as soon as the people I was with and I left the house. The kids didn’t understand the cost of using the AC, so the people I was with and I had to buy a smart temperature control at the beginning of last year, then now the kids can’t change the temperature control plus the people I was with and I get an alert on our iphone app if they try. They don’t like the new Summer rules, however they can go outside in the backyard plus swim if it gets too hot.
