would you leave your 3 year old alone in the bath?

My boys are with their dad for a few nights and when they are I like to Facetime one night just to say hello . Well my ex put the 3 year old in the bath alone with the door shut so he doesn't wake his brother up. I am talking to my 3 year old while he bathes,my ex sits the phone on the counter so we can chat,maybe I'm over cautious but I feel like its a little unsafe to leave him. I can see him but not help if something happens. What at your thoughts?

I leave my 3 y/o in the tub but I keep the door open so I can hear her.

I wouldn't close the door completely but I don't see a problem with it.

I do the same, the door shut is what is bothering me most.

No, I wouldn't.  My 3 year old takes showers, though (with some assistance.)

 I sit my 2 1/2 yr old in the tub by herself all the time but only to get something and come right back but I wouldn't close the door

Not something I would have done, but many do without incident.

Not with the door closed. I don't even close the door all the way when my 6yo showers and it's right next to my 2yos bedroom

But how can you alert him if something happens?
