My SS left my LO at home by themselves

So last night my SS girlfriend came over to hang out for a little while. When she was ready to go home my SS asked me if I could take her home and like always I said sure, and I asked if he could watch his siblings(6, 5 and 2 yr old) while I dropped her off because it was around 9:30 and I didn't want to take the kids out. He is 17 and told me sure he could watch them.

I get home about 30 min later and he was gone. My LO are still watching tv and the front door was unlocked. I called my DH because I was pissed and he really didn't care. I'm glad they were safe, but pissed that I even trusted him to watch them.

explain why you were upset and do not leave him with the kids again. if he needs you to drive his girlfriend home next time, explain that you do not wish to take the children out so you cannot give her a ride and they will need to make other arrangements.

I'm upset that I asked my SS to watch his younger siblings while I did him a favor and he left them at home by themselves. If I were to say that I left my kids at home while I went to the store so many people would have negative comments to make but because my 17 yo did it I shouldn't be upset.

I agree with this. You should definitely say this to your husband. It sounds like he is an ass if he doesn't care that your babies where left home alone at those young ages.

I think she meant, explain to HIM, not to us. We get it.

I'd be furious with him. And I'd let him know his girlfriend is to make other arrangements from now on. If he was leaving anyway, why did the take her home?

I would be pissed off, I honestly think that dh should be concerned about this and because stepson did this, there should be consequences for this behavior. He is old enough to know right from wrong. If I was you I'd tell dh to think of consequences because its just not right.

No one said that. What was said was to tell him what you are upset about and then let him know because of this you won't be accommodating him getting GF home anymore. They will have to find her another ride.
