    I personally wouldn't do 1 or 2 - but like PPs have said, it might be different if my usual chemist was set out differently -eg clearly see car from counter.

    As for 3, it would depend on lots of factors, such as how far they were likely to run, how busy the store was, etc, if you had a rough idea where they were. Probably wouldn't want it to be more than a minute without seeing or hearing them though.

    Having disagreements with your DP about different ideas of acceptable and not acceptable risks, OP?

    i wouldn't do any of those. probably option 1 is most tempting and on a rainy day, i could prob have my arm twisted...you can lock the door and if i could see the car the whole time i'm in there, then i probably would.

    option 2 is a huge no way and so is option 3.

    1. Maybe depending on the situation. I used to work at a small chemist where you could see the car park from most of the shop, plenty of mums dashed in leaving the kids in the car. They would drop the script in then go sit in the car with the kid/s & one of the assistants would run out to let them know when it was ready. I would be ok with doing this if necessary. Certainly not in a shopping centre where I had to go more than a few metres from the car.
    2 & 3 no, I'm not ok with those situations for me and my children.
    2: DD could be down the street and gone who knows where in 5 minutes, we have lakes within walking distance also busy road a block away.
    3: no because DD tends not to answer me in those situations so I'd have a hard time finding her if I lost sight of her.

    No way, no how, not a chance in hell would any of those scenarios be acceptable to me ever.

    No to all of them.

    1. I used a capsule so could take that in if bubs is asleep.

    2. It only takes a split second for a strange dog to run into the front yard and attack a child whether they are alone or with others.
    Our friends little boy, then 2.5yrs old, was walking beside his dad from their front door to their car which was parked in the driveway. All of a sudden this pit bull mix came out of nowhere and bit the little boy in his face. It took his dad several kicks to get the dog to release him (and his Dad has MMA training), it then went after him but gave up after he was kicked in the face. The little boy suffered major damage as the dog ripped muscle, tendon, skin away. It took 3 surgeries to reconstruct the left side of his face, the dog missed his eye by mm's. Now 5yrs on you can't tell he was ever attacked, but he is still s*&t scared of unknown dogs.

    3. No both my kids were runners so I wouldn't trust them not to run out of the store thinking it was funny!

    Default Situations - ok or not ok?

    I'm a relaxed/laid back parent but even I agree 2 and 3 are absolute no-nos. Not so much abduction risks but supervision is required- they still have no concept of road safety and also potentially trashing a store!!

    No 1 I wouldn't get my judgey pants on- not a blanket no, it depends on many factors.

    Default Situations - ok or not ok?

    My DD is 5 and gets enjoyment out of running off to hide in Kmart It's a big reason why I try to wait until my kid free weekends to go to shopping centres in town. I effing hate it when she does it, she knows it p!$$es me off. I tend to just go looking for her without yelling out. If she accidentally wanders off (occasionally it's unintentional), she actually does call out. If it's deliberate there's no point calling out, she won't respond anyway and eventually comes back to me with a cheeky grin. So annoying!!!
