"Latchkey child" nghĩa là gì?

'Latchkey child' có từ latchkey là chìa khóa rập ngoài, vì thế từ này nghĩa là đứa bé tự xoay xở khi ở nhà một mình (a child who is at home without adult supervision for some part of the day, especially after school until a parent returns from work).

Ví dụ
The term "latchkey child" may date back to World War II, but even today thousands of older children are home alone between 3pm and 7pm.

As a latchkey child of the women’s revolution, my sense of female identity formed as a byproduct of the push and pull of feminism, I know that bird.

Hank Azaria attributes his talent for mimicry to (a) watching lots of television alone as a latchkey child with two hardworking parents and two much older sisters who no longer lived at home; (b) growing up in an ethnically diverse enclave of New York City; and (c) picking up the street jive and crosstalk of Manhattan’s Garment District when he tagged along with his dad to work.
