I agree with neebug. I have been the personnel director for major companies. I have seen all kinds of crazy answers. Just be honest and say that you had a priority to rear your family, yourself. BUT, be careful, the company you did NOT go back to work for, without notice, will probably say you quit, that you failed to report for work, etc. It is a very fine line that old employers walk with what information they can give out. Ticking the box saying you will not allow your (hopeful) employer to contact your old employers is a HUGE red flag. Good luck.
