I don't think you can trust a 3 year old alone for 5 seconds let alone enough time for a grocery store run.

IgG4: I don't think you can trust a 3 year old alone for 5 seconds let alone enough time for a grocery store run.


There's, apparently, a very popular show in Japan where very small children (3 - 5 year olds) run errands. It's on Netflix now. It's popped up a couple of times and I was like .....no.

'Afterwards, I went straight to work with my friend. Nobody knew that this would happen.
'I just saved the child and left, and in the news and social networks they suddenly began to call me a hero.
'I do not consider my actions heroic.
'To me, everyone should lend a helping hand in such situations.'


Wow, both heroic and humble. I'm really glad they rewarded him very well despite his playing it down.

If it's being televised, then the kids involved are under constant supervision by a film crew, so I wouldn't worry too much.

My parents sent me to the post office to pick up our mail when I was in kindergarten.

Granted, it was maybe 100 yards from the house in a semi-rural area, and we knew all of the neighbours... but I did have to cross the street. I walked to school, too. It was about 300 yards past the P.O.

My grandfather was "worse". He would give us a dollar and send us to the store a mile down the road. I miss the days when a dollar would buy a pop and a handful of candies.

It is so terrible how many stupid parents think it is just fine to leave their small children at home alone, they are surprised when the child gets into trouble. This child was lucky, many others are not. Unfortunately, I was blocked from reading the article, so I don't know the entire story. I don't know which parent left the precious little baby alone, or was it both. The one that did deserves to be arrested. They should have to pay a fine, spend some time in jail and attend some serious parenting classes.

I remember riding my bike to the store with my friend to buy his dad cigarettes. We were 8.

I also have been sent to the store for Pall Malls. My siblings and I would later talk about finding dad in a crowd. We would just stop and listen a while for the familiar cough.

A lot of people (men, women) would probably do the same thing, but he's the one who DID so all good wishes to him. Hopefully if any of his kids EVER needs help, someone steps up for them as well.

We all need to help each other, and especially kids. This guy did, so lets remember this example in the future.

Yeah from the comments here the parents were stupid to leave a 3yo home alone.

Ever kicked in an external apartment door? I mean, *some* are flimsy crap, but mostly you're going to break a leg. And apartment means no windows to smash through, and often a heavy door for fire isolation. There's a reason fire and police departments have specialised equipment for breaking doors.

The guy from the lumber yard came out to measure for some replacement windows I was ordering. "The bottom sill on these is only 18 inches off the floor. You'll need safety latches that keep it from opening all the way." I said, "Oh, right. Clapton locks."  It took him three or four seconds of confusion at the new term, and then started laughing and said "oh, jesus, I can't call them that!"

Stupid question... Are apartments built much differently from houses? All of the apartments I've lived in appeared to have regular drywall in the hallways. I've heard rules about fire code sometimes means either more drywall or a double wall, but I always thought you could just bypass the door, kick the drywall in, and walk in between the studs.

'Walls' aren't interchange.

A brick wall? No.
A concrete wall? No.
Plywood wall? No.

But drywall? Absolutely.

I grew up in a townhouse and there was nothing but drywall between the us and the people next to us. You could kick through that party wall in wayyyy less time than a door.

I lived in an apartment in my 30s, and when locked out, we couldn't even break the door down.  and my bf was 6 foot, scottish, and could handle himself.
I'm sure there are buildings that flimsy, but it can't be common else how would residents prevent endless burglaries??

not sure why I'm entertaining your fairly ridiculous post... oh, because the alternative is doing housework.

a door is a bit harder to break down than breaking through 1/2" thick drywall.  If your bf had chosen to punch through the wall next to the door, you might have a different story to tell

A while back an African refugee did pretty much the same thing by free climbing I believe it was 3 or 4 balcony railings to save a toddler who was in real danger of falling to the pavement below. France offered him a citizenship for his actions.

I think it was the Golden Gate Killer that busted through walls next to the door to garages to reach in and unlock. That may not work now with a plywood fire barrier.
