    Not acceptable.

    This is how I would look at it in my own mind.

    If I did this what would be the worst thing that could happen ? house on fire, car accident- am I prepared to take that risk and the consequences ?

    No.

    Long life milk poppers in the cupboard & extra loaf of bread in the freezer helps avoid situations like that.

    I couldnt do it. We live on a farm and when DS is napping we sometimes get some jobs done outside of the house but always with the baby monitor in my pocket which beeps if we go out of range so we know our limits.

    I would be be ****ed. I would tell my ex if he pulled a stint like that again I would lodge a complaint with child services and use that as the basis for revisiting parenting agreements.

    With the amount of silly rules and regulations your ex places on you u think you have the right to pull him up on something as big as this.

    Default How angry would you be?

    I would be 110% off my face angry. As others have said, he should've taken DS with him or left it til later if DS had already fallen asleep.

    We live in a rural area and our bins are emptied 3km up the road. By the time we load then up, drop them off, drive home, it's about 10-15 minutes and I'll be honest, I've considered leaving my DS asleep at home and ducking up to put the bins out but I never have because what if he wakes or vomits and is alone? What if he chokes? Hardly worth risking that for the sake of empty bins.

    I would be furious.

    If DS was upset because he wanted milk then I don't understand why he wouldn't just put DS in the car and go fetch milk. Why wait til he was asleep?

    FURIOUS. What if there was a fire, or a home invasion or kidnapping. What if he was in a car accident? I would be beyond livid. Sometimes as inconvenient as it is - you have to take kids with you!

    Not happy at all.

    If he's always criticising you, I would use this as a lead in to a deeper conversation. I'd tell him you're not happy he left your son alone, that it's actually illegal to do so, and if he wasn't stressed or worried about doing it, why does he feel he can give you a hard time over any of your parenting decisions?? I'd also remind him that part of being a parent is having provisions for said child - milk, nappies etc BEFORE the kid arrives at their house. He sounds like a hypocritical jerk.
