What Would You Do if you saw two small children alone with no adult supervision?
We went to a fast food the other day, and 2 boys were sitting by themselves in a booth. One was a baby around 10 months old holding his bottle sitting in his car seat. The other was around 7 years old just walking around.
We were there around 30 minutes and no one really came out and took care of them. At another table sat a Mother and Child. This mother called the police. The police came and talked to the 7 year old asking where his mommy and daddy were. The answer was his mommy worked in the back with the hamburgers and his daddy worked at Outback.
The police had to call the Mother of the children out..and talk to her. I am not sure what the end result was because we left.
My question.. What would you do in this situation? Would you call the police? or Would you do nothing?
Obviously, this is a case by case basis. But if I felt the children were in danger I would definitely call for help. I am a mother that Loves my children and never lets them out of my sight.
I think the woman that called the police did the right thing. I know it wasn't easy for her. She was clearly upset. She said she was just worried that someone might come and take the children.
It is difficult to know sometimes.. when it is right to do something. But even if the Parents of these children were doing the best they could bringing their kids to work, sometimes.. unfortunately our best is not good enough.
