Thanks for the apology, I did read it as a bit judgey, but hey, it's okay, we're all different! I also didn't mean for my reply to seem 'snippy' at all, so if it came across that way, I'm sorry as well.
But this is exactly why I took the younger boys with me. I trusted him enough to be on his own, but with his younger brothers around, there's no way in hell I'd have left the house
It all comes down to the child and the situation as well, I'm not in the habit of leaving any of them home alone, but sometimes, I feel okay with it depending on the circumstances, y'know?
