So, would you leave a baby home alone, say if they're asleep in a crib or buckled in a swing? They wouldn't be cooking or answering the door or getting into anything they shouldn't. I doubt anyone would think this is acceptable because anything unexpected could happen. If this is unacceptable, how is it more acceptable for a child who CAN get into stuff they shouldn't, even if they promise they won't?
