    The point is, sometimes there are no easy answers and you just have to get on with it. It is called an accident for a reason, accidents happen all the time, sometimes as much as we want to blame someone, we just can't, because it wasn't anyone's fault..it was an accident

    I do somewhat get what you are saying VP.

    The trouble is that life goes on... amidst sickness and exhaustion etc.... I'm genuinely interested to know what you suggest one should do in these situations? (assuming that there is no family or close friends nearby and finances are limited)

    I wonder if someone never drove because they were tired and their child missed lots of school because of it, would Docs think tiredness was a valid excuse?

    I highly doubt it somehow.

    I guess you could homeschool, but then the aforementioned sickness would make that tricky too.... hmmmm.

    All jokes aside, I am genuinely interested to hear some ideas about this.

    I am a relatively healthy person these days but I have had my share of 'sick/tired' days where I did plenty of things that weren't optimal. They were necessary though IMO.

    I'm not talking about 'tiredness'. I'm talking about 'extreme tiredness' where your alertness is the same as someone with a blood alcohol level over 0.05.

    Whether or not you might get charged I suppose would depend on a variety of factors, eg:
    - were you just 'tired' or suffering extreme tiredness?
    - was there a local bus service?
    - was the school within walking distance?
    - were other options for drop off explored? (Eg hiring a carer, getting hubby to alter work hours to help etc).

    It depends on the walking distance and whether there was a local bus service?

    Plenty of things you do that others would say was unacceptable.

    I have a part-time job that I just returned to after maternity leave, I also have a husband and use daycare. But sometimes I still have the kids with me when I put petrol in the car, but I'd never leave them where I couldn't see the car. I've never left them in any other place alone in a car other than a petrol station.

    I think a person obviously has issues if you go into auto pilot. I have never done this, I would not simply drive past my ds's daycare and forget to drop him off. When I leave the house in the mornings I am focused on what I need to do, pure and simple. And as I said earlier I don't switch off once ds is at school, ds is at daycare and I am working. I think about my kids brought the day so being momentarily forgetful would soon be realised!
