100% irresponsible! I would have been fuming.
If it was my son's party I would never of left because if anything happened to any of kids I would never forgive myself.
I don't think leaving the premises was very responsible of the birthday girl's parents - at all.
I'm sure the parents of the children that were at the party were under the impression that their child was going to be supervised by the parents.
I think 4 year olds should be vigilantly supervised. Ditching them to grab coffee is not good form IMO.
I wouldn't do a drop and roll at 4. When I do leave I expect the host parents to stay.
If I host a kids party and the parents leave I'm 100% responsible for those kids. I'm not about to hand over that responsibility to strangers I met 5 mins ago.
All kinds of not ok.
I have been in the situation where i have had to host someone else's party. I am always prepared these days.
Definitely not ok!!! With 12 small children being left in the care of unfamiliar venue staff all sorts of things could go wrong! What if one of the kids wandered off onto the street? The venue staff may not even realize as they're not familiar with the kids. What if one of the venue staff was dodgy? What if one of the kids needed to go to the toilet and didn't want to ask the venue staff as they don't know them? Just so many reasons why its not ok!!!
Whoa thats totally not cool.
I wouldnt leave my 4yr old at a party but i leave my 7yr old and i def expect that the host parents are watching the kids.
(Ido always ask if its ok to drop off and i leave my contact details)
As a host id not dream of deserting my own kids party to grab a coffee. How irresponsible
So very bizarre...
Could they have had left someone else in charge for those 10min?
