    I've considered it ... For about a minute.

    Then I think of Madeline Mccan or the possibility of a fire and I snap out of it.

    I agree her friend is a dumbass but I give my friend the benefit of the doubt. She has no kids and I bet her ideas will
    change once she is in charge of a small defenseless person that have taker away her heart.

    It's a long way past just being shocking and wrong... it's illegal and disgusting. 100% wrong.

    A facebook group I'm a part of (It's a fitness group) had a post from a woman one day, who's nephew had been left at home alone asleep in bed while his mother went to the gym. The house burnt down and the boy died. This poor woman had lost her nephew, and found it really hard to be there for her sister as she believed (correctly) that she was responsible for his death.

    Imagine that.

    no way @cluckcluck! how lucky for the baby that a stranger went in to check the house
    where was this?

    To PPs who mentioned they could stay friends with the people thinking it's ok to do so, if I was to unfriend all the child less people in my life that ridiculous/dangerous ideas about parenting and caring for a child then I would not have many friends.
    It's a steep learning curve for most people to become a parent and I have no doubt that my two friends who thought this was ok will quickly change their tunes when one day they are blessed with a beautiful baby.
    I have said and think some pretty stupid things myself before I became a parent.

    that's horrible I know this is OTT, but when DD was tiny I kept expecting her to be dead the next time I went to check on her and was absolutely paranoid. I think it was an after effect of having taken a long time to conceive her, and I just didn't believe that something so perfect could happen to me. If anything ever happened to her, my heart would just be ripped out! I couldn't leave her alone in the house ever, and will probably have trouble doing so when she is actually old enough (like, a teenager or something). When she was tiny, I was scared to leave her on the riverbank with my MIL while I went on the boat - not because I didn't trust my MIL, but because I thought it would be the one time something would happen to me and she would be left without a mother.

    I once joked with a friend (via text) that I was craving for Maccas fries but DD was asleep, so I'd have to leave her for 10mins alone while I ducked out and grabbed some...

    She thought I was serious and texted back, "it takes approximately 7mins for a house to burn down".
    Those words always haunt me. I'd never seriously considered leaving DD alone but now there is NO WAY I'd ever even think about it.
