I am so tired of irresponsible parents! This afternoon, when the kids came home from school, the neighbor boy went home to find he was locked out of his house and his parents were no where to be found. He came over like he always does when they are not home, to use our phone so he could find out where they were and when they were going to be home, what to do, etc. Only to find that their phones had been blocked from incomming calls. We had to leave in 15 min. to run up the street. My boys had a hair appointment. Their next door neighbor was home, so we left a message with him to let this kids parents know that he was comming with us. We came home less than an hour later, and his step mom was standing on the sidewalk accross the street from their house. SO, I pulled up to let him out, and she was totaly PISSED. I explained to her that we tried to get in touch with her, but the phone was blocked and everything else we did. She said he knew better and that he should have just waited around the house for some one to show up, and that she was 5 min. away from calling the cops. Seriously, come on, we had no idea where she was, when she was comming home, nothing. A couple of weeks ago, we had him over after school to watch a movie and dinner afterwards, because she was out shopping and couldnt get home in time for the buss. She ended up calling at like 6:30 to let me know she was going to the casinos and to just send him home when ever. My husband walked him home a little before 8 because he was tired and ready for bed. My husband made sure no one was in the house and had him lock up after he left. This lady still wasnt home at 9:30 10:00 at night. I could not imagine leaving my 10 year old at home alone let alone locking him out of the house with no way to get ahold of me. Unfortunatly, the list goes on. I just cant believe that this poor kid got in trouble for comming with us. I feel so sorry for him, and I am so tired of irresponsible parents I could just scream!!!!!

It's a shame to see people that are so wrapped up in their own lives to even have kids. The first 20 or so years are yours.. When kids are born you need to make certain sacrifices for those that need it. In years time you will have your fun again, but for these years right now your fun should be experienced through your children.

I am not a parent, and hopefully I will not be for a few more years, but I know that my kids will always come first. I have 2 kittens right now that me and my girlfriend have in our apartment, and we hated to leave them home alone at first. That is one of the greatest things I love about my girlfriend is that I watch her baby these kittens, and I can see how dedicated of a mother she will be to our children, and I see myself in her. So I just know we will be great parents.

I applaud you for your patience and kindness to a child in need. I wish we had more mothers around like yourself. I wish you and your family all the best, and this more child next door as well. Hopefully his mother recieves a reality check before its too late for her, and her child.

Thank you chissler.

Well, I talked to the neighbor boy this morning and he said he didnt get in trouble. His Dad said it was his fault for locking the door. I still dont understand these people. On New Years we were at our neighbors, and someone helped them self to our house. I had to come over and get a diaper for our little one, and while I was in her room some one ran out of our house and slammed the door behind them. Talk about scary. I couldnt imagine leaving my door unlocked all day and have my son come home and be by himself. If they believe he is old enough to stay home alone then why the heck dont they give him a key to the house??? His step mom said they were worried because they are having a custody battle and the other side has threatened to come get him. SO she was worried that they did, then with the other breath insisted that he should have just stayed outside by himself, locked out of the house untill the came home. I know it is not my business, but he is a good kid and has been through a lot. I would just hate it if something bad had happened to him. Ive been trying to keep the peace with this woman for his sake. I dont want any tension so that he can always have a place to stay. I am afraid this might have ended that. I wish I knew what else to do. Unfortunatly, I found out they are about to move. Poor kid, he has been through so much. I just hope he has good neighbors.

I would have told her that if she was so worried about a custody battle, maybe they should take better care of him, and maybe you'll slip word to his mother!
