    I'm shocked! I think that's terrible. I put a big concrete dog in front of our door just to check the mail because I am worried it will slam an I will be locked out and dd locked in. Yet alone a 25 minute drive!

    Shocked. I'm pretty sure its illegal as well and I certainly wouldn't do it and make sure anyone I know that does it knows its illegal....

    Having said that, I have mowed the lawn when the babies were asleep and worked in the garden once which was as close as Ive come to leaving them (and in all honesty I would of found it hard to hear them over the noise of the lawn mower if they woke which was definatly negligent of me even though I checked on them every 2 mins or so and they usually slept at least 2 hours, but I had a house inspection and we were desperate for the sale and dh was working away).

    However I know my mum used to do it when I was a baby. In fact one of my earliest memories is waking up and finding my mum wasn't at home (she had ducked down the shop to get something). It was quite traumatic for me and I remember sitting on the steps and crying until she came home.

    That would be terrible! Aside from the illegal side
    (A REALLY good reasons not to do it) it would be so scary and upsetting for a little child to wake up alone. What if they woke up just a she was leaving and was awake the whole 25 minutes. I've seen DD get so upset (while I'm holding her trying to comfort) that she ends up coughing and scaring th bejeses out of of me.
    I can't figure out who would think that this is an okay thing to do!

    Definitely not cool, it would never even cross my mind to leave my babies at home alone.

    I have extreme anxiety and I wont even shower when DH isnt home. I shower at night when he is home to make sure nothing bad happens.

    I'm shocked people would think this is okay

    Our job is to protect our children at all costs - this includes ensuring adequate supervision by a responsible adult at all times.

    It's the classic 'it'll never happen to me' attitude. Well, sometimes sh!t happens - bad sh!t. Disasterous, worse case scenario, life changing sh!t. Who wants to take that chance with their precious child? I certainly hope there are very few people who would.

    People are idiots and they don't deserve to have kids. Period.

    Once when DS1 was about 2 DH had a big night out and tried several times to call a taxi without success (he was in an out of the way spot). So I told him to stay where he was, dragged DS out of bed and put him in the car. This was in winter and where I live gets very cold (often below zero). I didn't think twice about taking him with me and I would have been gone around 20 minutes. Not ideal but there was no chance in hell I was leaving DS at home on his own.

    You really have to wonder what goes through people's heads and how they justify their choices.


    Me + DH = DS1 (6), DS2 (2) and #3 due September 8th

    That is illegal i am pretty sure! Besides it being illegal though, its just plain irresponsible. How could anyone be proud of doing something like that? The baby isn't taking over their life? WTF!! Some people.
