As young working parents, we met a teen girl at the pool. We thought she was trustworthy and invited her to become the new babysitter. She brought her own daughter to my house. She also found my credit cards and took her mother shopping at a department store. Pictures were taken at the store. She left her residence before police could find her!
While at work one evening in a mental health hospital, I received a call from the Boise PD that I needed to return home regarding a problem with my 8 y.o. daughter. I rushed home to find two BPD cars, lights on, and my house full of men w/ guns. My daughter was enjoying the attention and the babysitter was not. She had called 911 when the sitter spanked her...
I took my kids to Chuckee Cheeses. I set the 3 yr old loose in the sky tubes & kept the 2 yr old w/ me. I waited. And waited for her to slide down at the exit. Nothing. 20 mins ltr I'm panicked. I hand the 2 yr old to a stranger & go up in the tubes. I run the course & she's not there. Now I've lost 2 kids. When I slide down, both are w/ the stranger crying. I'm the worst.
My daughter had an imaginary friend named Cindy who often visited our house to play dolls or eat lunch. One day my four-year-old told the sitter she was going next door to Cindy's house and left. I returned a few hours later and she was nowhere to be found. The neighborhood went on full alert, including the police, who found her at a park two miles away!
