      My ex continues to leave a 13 year old and a 10 year old without a Carer to go out in the evening.

      Both of the kids are dealing with anxiety and if they argued between themselves – it would take an adult to step in and help manage the situation.

      He has advised the kids to not call me if they can’t get through to him – which is when they call me because they are scared.

      I’m fed up of this bullshit. What can I do?

      If you feel there is a safety risk speak to a lawyer and ask what you can do. Obviously you could talk to your ex but I am guessing that is not an option.

      Pretty sure that 10 is under the legal age to leave kids at home. Police?

      Tell them to call you WHATEVER. It is one thing to leave them home alone but another to tell them not to call you. They need to be safe, to prioity.

      My ex does this all the bloody time so following. He also comes home drunk. I worry he’ll leave oven on or door unlocked etc

      This is illegal so threaten that you will call the police should it happen again.

      Yep. He is above the law! He is god. Even northern beaches lockdown didn’t apply to him and he chose to transit from northern beaches to inner west to ensure his needs were being met.

      Kids just told me now – he has gone out again now.

      I’m fed up. My kids need to start speaking up to. They are too afraid to speak up to him so sit there in silence and I’m the only one sitting here worried for their welfare.

      So fed up!

      Tell the kids to call you the next time he does it. Then call the cops for a welfare check.

      I’d understand leaving a 13 and 10 year old to pop down to the shops for 30 mins, but not to go out and get drunk. Neglect.
