**edit** Something I thought would never happen to me happened today

Posted by   + Show Post
Went to pick up my daughter from the after school program today at her school and my daughter wasn't there. My daughter is 7 years old and in the second grade. I started getting worried after about 5 minutes of the principal looking for her as well. When he asked to talked to me and another parent I knew it was trouble. Our kids are in the same class and apparently they took off walking after school. We didn't know they were missing for about 2 hours. It took us about 45 minutes to find them. They had the police on the way when another school called saying they were there. They had walked about 4 miles across 5 very busy intersections and multiple other smaller intersections. I never thought in a million years my daughter would take off like that. Her dad lives in texas and was freaking. Out and I couldn't stay on the phone with him because it was dying. I'm sooo thankful they are ok... And terrified of what could have happened.

**edit**
Many have asked about if she is being punished. I honestly have no idea how to punish her for this. Any suggestions.. Also is there any movies you can think of that would be good for her to watch about a kidnapping?

oh wow, how scary!! My oldest is 7 and in 2nd grade too, and I can't imagine how aweful that would be knowing what could have happened. Did the school have an explanation for how she and another kid disappeared without anyone knowing?

I'm so glad your daughter is safe and sound! That is terrifying. I have an 8 and 5 year old so I can't imagine how scary that would feel. I would have lost my mind. When I was 10 my cousin and I took off on our bikes across town without telling any adults and our parents completely freaked out. When they found us I thought they were being "mean" with all that screaming and yelling. Of course now I know they were just scared out of their wits.

I never did anything like that and I walked to and from school everyday at her age.
