I've also got an 11 year old with PDD-NOS, anxiety, and ZERO impulse control, a 9 year old with sensory issues and an as-of-yet undiagnosed receptive and expressive communication problem, and a 4 year old with food allergies ( wheat, barley, rye, oats, rice, peanuts, and tree nuts).
My first passing thought was "hooray, I'll get to do something different for a change", and then I crashed back to reality. I don't have childcare. Never have. Occasionally, I can talk my mom into watching them for a couple of hours, but she's in her 70's and is exhausted after a couple of hours (not to mention looking a bit shell-shocked). I just cannot fathom her watching them for over 8 hours.
They've released me for all but one day, but what am I supposed to do with them for that day???
The only options I can come up with are taking them with me (I could be arrested for contempt of court), or leaving them alone at home (I could be arrested for neglect or worse depending on what happens when I'm gone).
