Recently on another community it became very clear a LOT of parents leave their kids alone , sounds fine right ?
But how much is too much ? Just running to the toilet , ducking into the kitchen , running into the shops while they are in the car , leaving them at home by themselves while you leave the house in your car , is it ok to the leave the house for a while if YOUR DOG is babysitting ( yes someone said that ) ?
We all need to duck out for a few seconds generally still in the house but when is it going to far , when does it become neglect ?
The children in question are between infancy and early teens .
