...that her two young kids about 6 and 4 were in the front bay window playing with the very long blind cords. And that one of the cords was wrapped around the body of the youngest.
I did hesitate - and peered in to check there was no adult in the room. But then I thought f*ck it - if something happened to one of the girls, I'd never forgive myself.
I don't know them (although bizarrely she rents this house - and we used to live there 3 years ago). It took her ages to come to the door (but then I would often leave kids of that age in a room playing whilst I was in the kitchen or whatever).
She was a bit off - but then she did go and move all the end of the cords and put them up out of reach. I am very relaxed on many health and safety issues - but for some reason cords etc scares the bejesus out of me.
A friend of mine said I shouldn't have interfered.
YANBU. If my boys were doing something like dangerous out of my sight (no blind cords so wouldnt be that!) then I would like someone to tell me! Mine are 3 and 4 and often upstairs/downstairs playing alone. You try and make things as safe as possible, but things can happen after all./
