    Default Leaving kids home while traveling

    Wtaf? I can't even formulate a response to that.

    That's how old my kids are. My (nearly) 4yr old can't even wipe her ***. What did they eat?? This makes me so angry.

    That they're sh#t parents who fail to care for them properly when they are home, so figured they'd be fine on their own?

    I'm wondering if they are stupid enough to try a "left them in the care of bob, can't remember his last name" style defence...

    I really try to refrain from throwing the bad parent title around....

    But these are bad parents. Period.

    And there are wonderful singles and couples out there desperately trying to have a family and can't and then we have these sort of people.....
