My daughter's father left her home alone for 'just a few minutes' while he went to the gas station (which I think it had to be more like 10-15 because of where the gas station is). She is 4 years old and I am very concerned about his judgement regarding her safety. She told me about it and I confronted him and he said it was just a few minutes because she was watching a movie and didn't want to come with. I told him that's illegal and I hope he gets how serious it is.
What would you do if this happened to you? I am now requiring at least one of his parents to be there when he has her because I just can't trust his judgement. Who would think it's ok to leave a child alone?!? Not to mention it's child neglect.
