A woman recently asked for some advice about how she reacted when her husband left their daughters all alone in a public park. Here’s what happened.
They Didn’t Speak to His Dad
A 32-year-old woman and her 37-year-old husband had a difficult relationship with her father-in-law. They barely even spoke.
There Was A Restraining Order
The problem was so bad that her father-in-law got a restraining order against his own son.
Their Grandchildren Were Still Important
But no matter what had happened between the man and his son, the couple’s children, who were seven and nine, were still important, so the man’s mother would often come and collect them and take them home to visit their grandfather.
They Needed a Babysitter
Because of work, the couple needed a babysitter. The woman said, “We needed my mother-in-law to babysit the girls, but she couldn’t come to our house, so my husband took the girls to the park so she could pick them up from there.”
She Had An Emergency
Unfortunately, the woman’s mother-in-law couldn’t make it to the park to collect the girls. She’d tried to call her son, but he wasn’t picking up.
There Was No Reply
The woman had also tried calling her husband, but he wasn’t answering either. It took an hour until he finally answered, and what he told her terrified her.
He’d Left Them Alone
The woman said, “He told me he was already at work; he’d left the girls sitting in the park waiting.” The woman was petrified at the thought of her girls being left alone. She yelled at her husband.
He Thought His Mother Was Coming
Her husband told her that he’d left them there because he knew his mother would be along shortly; he hadn’t wanted to be late for work. But of course, his mother couldn’t make it in the end, and his wife told him that in no uncertain terms.
She Went to Get the Kids
Her husband tried to calm her down by telling her that it was broad daylight and they weren’t in any danger, but she rushed to the park to find her girls.
He Said She Overreacted
When her husband got some, the woman went ballistic, screaming about how he had neglected their kids. She said, “He actually told me I was overreacting and angry at the wrong person. He blamed his mom for bailing on him at the last minute.”
She Told Him It Was His Fault
The woman wasn’t going to allow that, and she firmly told him it was all his fault and that he should never have left the kids alone, no matter what.
He Started Using the Kids
The couple stopped talking, but the woman’s husband decided to use the kids against her to get his own way. He told them that their mommy needed to apologize to him to make him feel better.
Was She Wrong?
Was the woman wrong to get mad at her husband for leaving their kids alone in the park, or did he do the right thing?
The Internet Responded
One person said, “In addition to his reprehensible and neglectful actions, how dare he demand an apology from you and use your daughters as tools in his manipulation?”
Another said, “As a father, I would NEVER leave my children to fend for themselves. Ever. That is utter insanity.”
