while you are at work??

I ask because my 10 year old daughters friend was over and her mom was at work, we had to run some errands so I told her to call and check with her mom if its ok for her to go with us. She called her moms cell but she doesn't have it on while at work she didn't know the number to call her at work so I called her older brother (he's 16) who is in charge of them while mom is working and he didn't know how to get a hold of her either! I guess if they need something they text her and when shes on her break she checks her phone. this just doesn't seem safe to me!

maybe I over do it but when ever my kids are not with me I make sure they have my cell # and both of hubby's so they can get a hold of us and that's when they are with other adults They don't stay home alone

I am a SAHM and my daughter is only three so I don't have this issue yet.  However, if she is with someone else they always know my cell phone number (and my husband's, as well as anyone else that might be with me- my sister or my mom mostly) and where I am going.

My mom knows how to. My son isn't old enough to use a phone by himself.

No my son is too young, but when I leave I give all my numbers to my mom so she can contact me anytime if anything happens
