It boggles the mind that a Perth woman could allegedly leave two children aged six and four at home without care and supervision to travel overseas.
Mamamia reported previously that the woman claimed to have left her step-children unattended in her home because Australia Post had lost their passports.
“If you are really concerned about my children, can you please help me sort out this post office and locate passports,” she said via an interpreter, “because without passports my children will not be legal here.”
She said her decision to leave them alone at the property ought to be “between me and my children.”
Post continues after video.
In this, the decision to leave them alone at the property should be between her and her children, she’s both correct and incorrect.
Australian law is equivocal on how old a child needs to be before he or she is left unsupervised and for the most part it asks parents to make a judgement call based on each individual child.
