Some Observations About School Buses and an Extrapolation

I stopped for a school bus with flashing red lights this morning and watched as a mom took a video of her child walking toward the bus, walking up the bus steps, and walking into the bus. Then, the mom chit-chatted with the bus driver while cars piled up in both directions.

When I was growing up, mom said, "Don't miss that bus or you're walking to school!" and meant it. I stood by myself at the curb waiting for the bus with mom inside the house doing mom-things.
When I got off the bus after school, mom was waiting inside the house.
I have a sneaking suspicion that times have changed since then.
I'm just a little bent out of shape having to wait for a mom make a video of her little darling at the expense of at least a dozen other families who were in the stopped cars.
I heard a story this year of some parents following their child onto the bus, but I hesitate to report this because I have no substantiation.
And now for my extrapolation:
How long will it be until parents want to sit with their children on the bus all the way to school? This will, of course, necessitate the bus having to return said parents to their homes? I know it sounds crazy, but, hey, some extrapolations turn into truth.
