So lets just say you are babysitting for someone....

and tell you before hand (heavy drinker) no drinking tonight so pick up kiddo early. Then came to pick up after LO was asleep and said only had a couple beers and a shot. Do you refuse child or let them take her? I know if I would have those I may be on the floor. Everyones tollerance level is different, I know, but still. What would you do?? Be honest.

  • REFUSE! Get your phone and tell the person that you are keeping the child over night and that they refuse then you will call 911 right now and report them!

  • Complete honesty.  I know that some might think I am a prude but no, they wouldn't be going anywhere with the child.  Period.  They would be more than welcome to stay over night also.  I don't play that drinking and driving crap.  You come to my house after drinking, you aren't leaving until the next day. Kid or no kid.

  • I wouldn't let them take the kid and I would suggest that they sleep on the couch or call someone to pick both of them up. No interest in drinking and driving, especially with a child involved.

  • nope cause if they were to get in an accident i would feel horrible cause i could have prevented the child from being involved

  • I would refuse to let the child go with the person and if they gave me any trouble and tried to take the child i honestly would call the police.
