What does the law say? Or is there even a law that clearly defines it?
Is it ok to go out in your back yard while the baby is sleeping inside? Is it ok to go out to the car to get something while the children are in the house? Is it ok to go to the mailbox at the end of your short driveway or to the mailbox on your porch? How about inside the house- is it ok to be in a different room than your child? Do you have to have your eyes and hands on them at all times?

Good answer anon., also depends on age of children, the older then the less you worry about sitting in your backyard on a warm summer night relaxing while the kids are asleep. I do this but my girls are 8 and 5 and if they can't find me in the house they know I'm out back..Being outside calms me so I like to be in nature to relax.

I consider it alone when I go to check my mail but I can still see my house and my kids are sleeping. I go right after they fall asleep so I know they aren't going to wake up for awhile.
