Only hope can give rise to the emotion we call despair. But it is nearly impossible for a man to try to live without hope, so I guess that leaves Man no choice but to walk around with despair as his companion.

Google would probably suck it's own dick before spewing an answer as vague your question. Care to rephrase your question?

That's like one of those things you're not supposed to do but that's actually usually okay most of the time. I mean, you shouldn't do this, but like... Let's be real here. Most parents have probably done this.

It depends on what environment the kid is being left in. Kids have died after being alone for 10 minutes, but I think most parents have probably done this at least once at one point or another. But again, it just depends on the environment you're leaving the child alone in. In the bath? Definitely not. In their bedroom where they can't hurt themselves? Probably fine.

It also depends on the kid themselves. Kids are different. Some can be trusted by themselves, others will somehow find a way to get their head wrapped around a cord or something and suffocate themselves the instant you're gone. Some are just going to sit in front of the TV watching stuff, others are going to try to play with knives or drink the chemicals under the sink. Know your kid.

Hmm. They were left in their bedroom. I'll make sure it doesnt happen again just to be safe

A 3 year old in their bedroom for ten minutes is absolutely fine in most cases. It all depends on the child and the environment like nooneman said.

Is that a child being left in another part of the house for 10 minutes or is that an adult driving to the local bar for "10 minutes"? Very big difference.

In most places there are no statutes for age limit on leaving a child at home alone. It is usually up to the discretion of the parent to discern the safety and maturity of their child as it should be.

I would not leave a child alone for any reason in a place like Juarez Mexico. I think it would be fine in Husavik Iceland though.

In most cases It is probably fine.

No F'n way. Where I live, and I believe in many places, the accepted rule that ChildProtective Services goes by is that children need to be 12 before being able to be home alone, and 14 in order to watch younger kids. That being said, yeah usually nothing bad will happen. But if something happens that could have been prevented had you been home, the cost is too much to take that chance. If this is the only fight you've hadf - Bravo! Let it go down with her winning. All thre of you will win then. Practice....You....were...right.....I....was....wrong.

Why does the kid have to be unsupervised for 10 minutes?  Why can’t the kid just come along if it’s only 10 minutes?

Kids can do A LOT when you're not looking... They can fall into water, eat chemicals, eat substances or, the house can catch on fire. As a general rule of thumb a kid under 5 years old should never be more than 5 seconds away, just barely out of eye shot, and even that is lax.

Sorry if I misread or was rash but 2-3 baby gates makes it sound like that kid is exceedingly difficult to get to and I'm a dad too and I want to make sure you're not leaving him in a bad situation or environment because 10 minutes is long enough to kill a fucking kid in MANY cases!!!

I don't have kids of my own blood but helped raise 3 and I'm now up to 4 "grandkids" so I'm already on my second round.

I smoke like a chimney. I don't smoke around the kids so will step outside often for 5-10 minutes without them in sight but within hearing. Haven't had a single thing happen that wouldn't have happened with me standing right in front of them. As long as you have some form of monitoring over their actions I would take your side.

No it's not okay. You should be reminded of all the idiotic parents who killed their children  and then said, " but I only left them for a couple of minutes!!!" And that should make you realize that there are always unforseen dangers, and that risking your child is never worth it.

Not a fucking chance would I leave my child of that age anywhere.

You should already realise with how much random shit they do at 2 or 3 years old that you can't think of everything.

99.99 percent of the time it's probably fine and if your ok with losing your kid then that .01 percent might be a safe bet for you.

But fuck that. Never ever ever leave them alone for any length of time like that. Not only for danger but imagine how fucking terrified they will be if the people they trust for everything in their life isn't there when something goes wrong.

Fuck that it's not worth it. Whatever you have to do that's more important than them should become something you never do again for even questioning it.

My two cents anyway, your life your kid.

Yeah man, I fully agree.

I got two children of my own around that age. My take on it is to raise them in a way, that feels right. It wouldn't feel right to leave kids alone, so I don't do it. (Not even when they are four)

Even if you are home, you need to watch toddlers real carefully. My toddler was eating paint from the windowsills and got lead poisoning. I didn't know our house even still had lead paint, but somehow he found it very adeptly. Luckily it was caught before the damage was too severe.
