So my son (who is 4) spends sunday nights at his dads house. We all live within blocks of each other (myself, his dad, and my mom). Today I was driving to work and saw my sons dad walking across the street without DS so I turned the car around to ask him where he was. he says he's inside watching tv...by himself mind you..I told him, "you can't leave him by himself!" Anyway, this is the 2nd time he's been caught (who knows how many times he's really done it) doing this the previous time was by my mom who saw him walking without DS and told me. When I asked him about that time he said the same thing. "he was inside watching tv". I've talked to him about it before but clearly he doesn't seem to care. His dad goes across the street to the convenience store to get a cup of coffee in the morning....like that can't wait? or take DS with you.. I don't understand how irresponsible can you be?? I explained to him that anything can happen in a split second and that it is illegal to leave a 4 year old home alone. Am I overreacting? What would you do?
