Would you leave a 7 and 3 year old home alone?

A mother in Cleveland did. They say it "could" lead to criminal charges. This is not her first time dealing with social services either.

  • No, and if this is not her first offense, she should have at least a fine to pay. Or made to take some awareness classes about what is age appropriate for her children.

  • Absolutely not! That is absurd. A 7 y/o cannot take care of him/herself, let alone a toddler!

  • That's just absurd. Of course I wouldn't. Some people have no common sense and are a danger to their children.
