my boyfriends 31yr old sister was watching my 2boys for us (8week and 2 1/2yrs) while we went to the dr when we got back she was gone and my kids car seats were here, she took my 8week old and 2 1/2 yr old along with her two boys (3&6) in her 4 seat mustang with no car seats and my 8 week old on her lap, would i be able to press charges against her?? (she doesnt ever buckle her kids up and they both just sit in booster seats in her car and she smokes with her kids in the car)

  • Thank goodness your children are safe. I would chalk it up to a lesson learned and never let her watch your children again.

  • omg..... Report her to the police and she will get pulled for not having those kids hooked in. Without her being directly caught I dont think anything can be done about that. I just know that crazy would not be watching my kids anymore.

  • i don't know what legal stance you could report, seeing that it would probably end up being her word against left them in her care(knowing how she disregards safety seats for her own kids). she doesn't care that her kids aren't safe; why would she care if you bitched her out about yours? but you can always call the popo and find out.
    i'd for sure never leave them with her again. lesson learned, i guess.

  • OH MY GOD! Is she INSANE?!

    I would call the police department and tell them what happened and ask them what you can do. THAT IS CRAZY! I would have yanked her out of the car by the hair on her head if she hadn't had your baby in her lap! CRAZY BITCH!

  • Call your police department, but to be honest, if I already knew she cared so little about her own children that they weren't seat belted in her car....I wouldn't expect her to care at all for my children, and wouldn't have left them there in the first place. I'd have taken them with me to the Dr. apt if I had if you tell the police that she doesn't seat belt her own kids, they may say the same thing.

    Good Luck.
