I watched on the news a mother left her 2 yrs old daughter ALONE NOBODY was home she just up and left to the store. The cops took her daughter away for good.
I never have left my kids alone, but i I wanted to know is that common? You can answer anonymously to save the drama attacks; I did see a group post on cafemom that a women left her kids alone to go to walmart and i was in SHOCK that she took the responses as a joke and made it seem like alot of moms leave their young children even babies home by themselves.

Ummm NO I wouldn't and I can't think of any type of GOOD mother who would leave a two year old home. There has been plenty days that I might think I need to run to the store but if I don't want to take my daughter who is 22 months then I don't go or wait until her dad gets off work but most of the time I take her or run errands before she gets out of daycare! There is nothing normal about leaving a baby, infant, toddler at home by themselves. No to long ago in the news in Atlanta there was two parents who left their children at home they were both younger than three and left them barricaded with a gate in a run with a heater...well of course we all know what happen it was wreckless, preventable, and just plain cruel no excuses!!

I leave mine alone all the time... but they are teens. However, since they are teens I dont leave them for long on weekend nights... i certainly dont want to come home to a party in my house.
I think the earliest I left them was about 6th grade while I made a VERY quick trip... usually just dropping someone off at a sports practice. My son was allowed to stay alone earlier than my daughter because he is very ocd when it comes to following rules.
