    I know my 2yo and there is no way in hell I would leave her home alone. Not a chance. And if DH did there would be hell to pay.

    I would have absolutely cracked it! Maybe (I know it seems like common sense to us but men can be a bit naive sometimes) he didn't realise how serious it was taking an unrestrained child and leaving one at home until well now? Hopefully he now knows how serious it was and it doesn't happen again!
    I don't know what else to say, but

    I would not be impressed if my DH ever did that.

    Hope you can sort it out and show him the error of his ways. And good on you for not yelling. I doubt I would be so restrained in your position!

    I agree and feel the same way.

    Not many things are deal breakers for me...but if my DH ever left our little boy home alone for 5 minutes let alone 15 we would be out the door.

    I would be asking if he has ever done it before. Either way I would not be leaving the kids alone with him.

    I would have gone mental at him! You did will not to yell at him.
    My mum used to leave me, my 4 year old and 1 year old brothers at home alone every morning. She'd leave at 6am, go to the shops, buy herself a coffee milk and a heap of scratchies and come home.
    I remember the first time I woke up and realised that she wasn't home and that we were ALONE. I freaked out big time. Nearly called the police. And I was 11! Let alone a 2 year old.


    DP and I had an argument about this a few months ago. He applied for a job that meant he we need to work 4pm to 1am weeknights, when there's no transport available and he can't drive. I asked him how he expected me to come and pick him up if the baby is asleep. I couldn't wake our child up 5 nights a week to go and pick him up. His reply was "The baby will be fine, he'll just sleep"
    Btw, this was a 50 minute drive away.
    Needless to say, I gave him a real talking to.

    Wow. I would be so annoyed. Not only is it dangerous, but illegal as well.

    Absolutely. That's just unacceptable. Really what was he thinking?

    I'm still in shock and I don't know how I didn't yell and loose my sh*t. I suppose I know that he tunes out when I yell and I wanted to scare him by being icily cool and calm.

    If something were to have happened to my ds I would never have forgiven him and our marriage would be over.

    The other issue is I can't trust him now so I'm basically signing my freedom away. I should be able to leave my children with their dad and be totally 100% confident with his ability and know my babies are safe.

    Feel so emotional and at a loss about our entire future.
