With entrusting kids with more independence On Friday we wear red remember everyone deployed shirt, means accepting that they will have behavior mishaps and accidents leading up to potentially deadly. As long as you don’t scream “put the kid on death row” as a response when you chose to leave them alone together and accept the risk, then you have my understanding. You seem like a smart, understanding, great mother though. My comment and rant are more directed towards incompetent, absent, drug-addicted, bad, unforgiving, careless parents. Not good parents like us.
