    Where is the mother?

    Why was the door unlocked?

    Who knew they were alone? Someone told the police.

    Also I just wonder about what the kids actually did. Did they eat? Where did they sleep? Were they distressed?


    My mind is going to be spinning all night just thinking about this...
    This is me. I have a 4.5 year old and I keep thinking what would she do if I just left for a few days?! Aside from the fact she probably wouldn't go to bed (at all), what would she eat? Would she go outside and play, or run off? Would she go to our neighbours place? Help herself to the cutlery drawer with all the sharp stuff? Throw a tantrum?

    The mind boggles

    Only 4 and 6 years old. I feel so sad for them. What did they do? What did they eat? Could they go outside? Open a window? This is disgusting. Poor children. At least they had one another for company so perhaps weren't as lonely as they'd be if they were on their own!

    This is horrifying. I've had nightmares where I've driven to the shops & realised I left the kids at home &I'm desperately trying to get back to them but can't. Even in my dreams it's terrifying. Those poor kids.

    I have a 4yo and 2yo. To be honest if I left the country for a few days the 4yo would probably take better care of the 2yo than me . But that's if everything goes well. It's the second there's an emergency that they can't deal with it.

    Despite having a very responsible 4yo she probably won't be left alone till 14 because I'm a worry wort.

    I wondered if the family was of a different culture? Perhaps originally from a place where kids were basically expected to be working by 8?

    So apparently Australia Post is to blame because the kids' passports hadn't arrived so she couldn't take them..... Seriously?! SERIOUSLY?!
