    I think it's so unfair that she is getting all the blame, she is their step mother!
    Surely the father is the one who is responsible - they are his children but the media concentrate completely on the woman.

    Default Leaving kids home while traveling

    The whole story is crazy.

    The saddest part for me is that children are neglected all the time. Some people are just not fit to be parents, or step-parents.

    Oh yes, he is to blame also. But ultimately, she was the one who left the house with them inside.

    Wasn't he overseas? If she's got care of the children and she left them, that's her fault...no different to leaving your children with a babysitter, they are responsible while they are in charge.

    yep - I agree with it being on her.

    if he left and went overseas and left her with care of the kids ... she absolutely 100% knew that if she left and drove to the airport, got on a plane and LEFT THE COUNTRY ... that those children were all alone. Until she got back.

    Aust Post has now come out and said they didnt lose the passports but even if they had - what difference does it make? She still decided to leave them at home and go overseas !!!!!

    Agree that the father should also be getting flamed! Yes the step mother ultimately left them so she is to blame but I think it's VERY unlikely that he didn't know her plan.

    Where is their mother?

    I agree. But also, a responsible father, after meeting up with his wife overseas, would go crazy because his kids aren't with her and call every person he knows in Perth until someone agrees to go to their house and look after the children and then be on the very next plane home. It does not appear that he has done that.

    Maybe she told him she'd arranged someone to look after them?

    I just can't get my head around this story... 😕 The thought of those poor kids all alone just turns my stomach.
