I Left My Child Alone for Five Minutes and They…
I think all parents know that all it takes is a few, short minutes for your kids to find themselves in some trouble!

When kids find themselves without parental supervision, sometimes things can take a turn for the worse, FAST. I remember when I was in elementary school, my family had offered to watch our class guinea pig over spring break. My dad and I took it out onto the grass with a little fence on it, but when he went inside for a second, I let it loose and then had to chase it down and tackle it before my dad got back. I don't think he ever knew, but I definitely learned my lesson!
