He didn't tell her he was leaving her there and understandably she got upset when she couldn't find him and didn't know when he was coming back. I don't mind her being left at parties as long as it's explained that we're coming back at a certain time etc.. She's generally happy staying places and has settled into school brilliantly. However, I always take care to explain if I'm leaving her somewhere, where I'm going and when i'll be back. He's dropping her back this afternoon and I wondered whether is should have a little chat to explain this? It's reassurance for her.

Assuming he's a reasonable man and a decent father couldn't you just ask him to tell her that he's leaving next time?

How did you find out what happened? Did he tell you?

I saw another mum last night and she said my DD was upset (and explained how she was). He is pretty reasonable and I'm not going to launch into some tirade - so I'll probably just kind of mention it this afternoon.
