i have seen the toddler left outside asleep in her pram on her own for at least 10 minutes(how long i was in the shop next door for)while the mum played on the fruit machine as well.i do leave ds1(9) or dd1(8) to keep an eye on the lo's outside a shop while i nip in for milk or something now and again,but it seems totally wrong to me to leave your children outside a bookies so you can gamble?
i dont know the mum personally but her dd goes to the same school as mine.

I feel sorry for the kids
I dont even like leaving dd in the car when I go pay for petrol, and the other day I parked up outside an ATM at Tesco metro to get some money out, only gone two mins and she was howling when I got back (she's 18 months) so no way would she be happy if I left her for 10 minutes
