    Default quick question re collection

    Just looking for a bit of advice please. I've asked for mindee to be collected an hour early tomorrow and parent has agreed but said her 13 year old daughter will collect, just want to check that it is okay for her to do so? Mindee is 2 and will be transported in her buggy and the older child does look after her alone sometimes at home. I just feel a bit wary so thought I'd check it out.
    Thank you xx

    I wouldn't allow a 13 old pick up a mindee - imo its way too young for the responsibility.
    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    That would be a no no for me unless I had a full written form saying the parents accept full responsibility but I still wouldn't be happy about it

    It would be a no from me too, you wouldn't know if they got home safely.

    Thanks for your help. I didn't feel comfortable with it which is why I posted. I have told Mum I can't do it and she is going to pick lo up herself. xx
