    That must have been tough for the two of you,OP. I would definitely try a babysitter or courier... it will cost you, but less than the 1k fine. Or call the uni &xplain the situation &try to see if someone can come & pick it up? Sorry,I also wouldnt leave a sick 8yo home alone.

    Isn't it illegal to leave a child under 12 home alone?

    Nope. There is no defined age in most states.

    Oh no way, absolutely not.

    Plenty of helpful suggestions above though to consider.

    I can't believe that you would even consider such a disgusting idea. A sick kid that is so sick they have been in hospital and can't be taken in a car NEEDS a full time carer. His age doesn't even come into it. Money doesn't come into it.

    There are plenty of other options.
    I am without doubt if you rung the uni and explained the situation they would give you other ideas of how to get it back to them.

    I know this is harsh but I think you may need a serious reality check.

    I would call the uni. Surely there would be one person to pick it up. Or organise a courier or a friend to either drop it off or look after your son
