He needs to be somewhere by September 1. It doesn't have to be a place he loves. It doesn't have to be the place he'll stay in for the rest of his life. Just somewhere. Period. The end.

I think it's asking a lot of a 6 year old to monitor his grandmother - I see the theory of it but in practice, it's really hard. So his grandmother says "ok kiddo, let's just go with the seatbelt"...
