    I don't get this OPs post.
    Plenty of us have said it sounds crazy. Crazy that you loaned a piece of equipment worth so much from uni and even crazier you'd get a $1000 fine for overdue items.
    Even harder to believe that you'd leave a sick 8 year at home and as pp said considering you claim to be a helicopter parent.
    And you haven't come back in the thread to reply to any posts.
    OP you should come back into the thread where you asked for advice and comment.

    OP, I'm sorry you're getting such a harsh response. I can see how you may have thought this was your best option, with your neighbour checking in. If he were responsible & in good health, then I wouldn't see the issue; you know your child best. Given he's so sick though, I don't think he should be on his own. The courier sounds like a great idea. Hope you get/have got it sorted out

    Some fierce and nasty responses here. The OP asked a question seeking advice and mostly what she got back were critical, judgemental responses attacking her for even asking the question, appearing to challenge the legitimacy of the situation, or having a go at her for not coming back in a timely fashion to answer questions. Good grief.

    Some of the replies seem a bit OTT.

    But from someone who proclaims to be a helicopter parent that rings her kids day care 5 times a day, to ask if it's OK to leave a just discharged from hospital and too sick to ride in the car 8 year old home alone does seem incongruous .

    Very glad you found a suitable solution to this and the uni was reasonable (as I would expect in such a situation).

    None of the replies were harsh or OTT. The fact is the child is sick and 8 yrs old. Not good enough to even think it's ok to leave them home alone

    Seriously ppl think it's ok?

    Hey Hun sorry for forgetting the background. Does this mean you have a DH? If so why couldn't he pull his finger out and help look after your child during the day?
    - apologies if I have jumped to conclusions.

    rhetorical question??

    it means the second set of behaviors described does not fit in with the first.
