Hmmkay! Get this!!! *Unreal*

Hmmkay!
My Brother-in-law (really nice guy) has this chaaarmer of a new girlfriend. They went to Las Vegas for 3 days.

The sickening part...they left her 11 year old son home alone,
on a farm, out in the country, to be responsible for the care of 4 horses.

Niiiiiiice Huh? ***! She makes me want to 100% PUKE!

I wish I knew about this before and while they were gone!
I would have called Children's Social Services...in a millasecond!

......Now I am officially talking to myself...thats ok.

I was supposed to babysit her 3 year old boy today....
but apparently there is a lovers quarrel going on.....

So she kept the 11 year old home from school to
do the babysitting for the day while she is gone.

Just Greeeaaaaat!

In our state....a child can be left home at the age of 10,
for so many hours.
So I may not have a basis for a call today.

The Vegas thing really burns me....they never even asked us to help.
They put the care of those horses in front of their child!

I cant beleive that....the boy could have gladly stayed with us.
They could have hired a hand for the horses. RETARDS!

And my mum thought it was bad when my aunt asked me to babysit my 3 cousins overnight when she had to go away when I was 16! When we were 11 we were still lucky if my mum didn't follow us to school to make sure we were OK let alone leave us at home by ourselves! But then my mum STILL is way too overprotective! When i moved to canada she spent the whole flight watching flight tracker to make sure my plane didn't crash or something

Did your brother in law know she was leaving the kid?

You said you can leave a 10 year old alone for so many hours... what about three days?? I'm sure that's got to be over the limit!

And I would think it might be a bit young to be in charge of a 3 year old? I mean, I know some kids are really responsible and whatnot, but in the STATE'S eyes, what's the rule?

I'd still call, if anything to give her a good scare (or try to anyway )

I believe a lot of the state laws are that a child has to be like 13 before it's allowed to babysit. Additionally, it's illega in some places to keep your children home from school to do this. We have all kinds of information here in chicago that gets sent home telling you that it's mandatory for your children to be there and if your child has more than 3 unexcused absences in a school year you can be taken to a trial where you have to explain to the judge why your child isn't making it to school.

When they went to Vegas...the 3 year old went to his fathers house.
These 2 boys have different father's...

I know that in our state a 10 year old can stay alone for so many hours.
I am not sure of the babysitting the 3 year old though.

I have talked with Child Protection in the past reagrding another matter.
The intake worker explained to me the process of calls and how they handle them....how they rate them and so on.

I dont have enough facts to make a call today...I mean I could call.
It most likely wont do any good...as by the time the intake call would
be reviewed....the mother will be home from wherever she went.
By that time it would be a matter of here-say.

But I promise....next time they take a trip.....I am going to flat out ask what arrangements are you making for your children!
