Re: Leaving kids at home alone sick or healthy?

Yikes, yeah that would make me uncomfortable too. I used to work 3rd shift at a gas station, and i had a co-worker who used to bring her small children (3 and 5) to work with her and they'd sleep in the car all night while she worked, she went out to check on them often but it still made me uneasy.
I understand her position not wanting to impose, but really a 9 year old who is sick can't be responsible for his 4 year old brother.
Maybe if they were healthy, during short outings to the grocery store or something it would be ok, but not while they're sick. I feel bad for you and for her.

Ugh, last night she thought they could go to school/preschool today. But she called me this morning saying they were staying home. Again. My morning was kinda crazy as she called when I was getting the kids on the bus and then DH had a conference call so I couldn't get back to her until it was too late. Ugh. I'll try to check on them when DH gets home with the car.
