They called cps because I left him alone
by Anonymous

My 8 year old. For 2 minutes in the car while I ran my daughter into daycare... I’ve been doing this since September and a parent said something. He has a phone, he stays seated and buckled, I have the keys and the door is locked. He knows the rules he FOLLOWS the rules. He doesn’t even budge he just watches his video or plays minecraft. She told me she would have to report it to cps because it’s child abuse/neglect.
He’s 8, and very mature. He wasn’t last year so I would bring him in. I wouldn’t leave my kid there if he was scared or couldn’t handle it.

    I really think there should be consequences to reporting frivolous claims to CPS.

    What a meddling bitch she is.  I don't think there is anything wrong with what you are doing.

    Thats ridiculous. I do the exact same thing with my son and daughter when I drop off my youngest. They are 9 & 7 and perfectly fine to sit for 2 minutes.

    I was like “he’s 8 and ok with it” and she was like “well you really shouldn’t do that I’m going to have to report you”
    The fuck? Lol. I even had my one year old in my arms if I was really abusive or neglectful he’d be the one in the car 🙄

    Welcome to the world of helicopter parents. It's not enough to stifle and infantalize their own children, they must do it to ALL children.

    Was this someone who worked for the daycare or a random parent?

    I would never leave a child that young alone for 2 mins or 10 in a car its just lazy neglectful parenting imo. My kids never stayed alone in a car till they were 12 or 13. My kids always came with me to drop off siblings.
