All depends on the age of the children. Also Depends on the weather. But if younger and its really hot most likely call the cops if did not see any older person in a while. Or if I have been in the area a while go and talk to the ppl next door before jumping to conclusions. and just tell them my concern. if older like teens not worry to much about it.

I would go stand with them.  It's right there where you can see so you can stand guard on your house and them.  Then I would let the mom or whoever else came out know that they were fighing and playing with the door.  I rarely call the police and I wouldn't in this case.  Especially since joining Cafemom and all of the debates about leaving kids in cars, some moms just aren't thinking.  Not knowing how old the kids are plays a key factor.

That may not even be illegal.

My two are 6 and 8. They play in our yard alone. Some kids even younger play alone in the neighborhood.

As long as she had the keys and the doors were open, I don't see why it was a problem. She probably planned on running to the door and when she stayed longer she came to get them. She probably had eyes on them the whole time.

I think you over reacted.
