What was a two year old child doing unsupervised? Maybe it's just the way the fml was worded, but it sounds like the child was in a room crying by herself.

#58 well, not everybody is keeping their children in a cage under constant supervision. It's not like she was abandoned somewhere. There were other family members nearby - the proof is that her brother immediately went to check on her when he heard something was wrong. So chill.

58, my two year old loves to be by herself. I give her space because i think that's healthy to be able to spend time alone as well as time with others. She comes to get me when she needs something or wants a playmate.

That was not at all what I was going for! But kids that age are still so dependent on help or at least a watchful eye that they don't purposely try to spend time alone. They might go to their room because their toys are there, or they might stay there engrossed in play when the adults leave but they will not go away "to be alone". I have a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old and they don't go off alone with the sole purpose of being alone.

Just because your kids don't do it, doesn't mean kids in general don't do it. My son doesn't feel the need to be alone, however my 2 year old niece frequently hides in her room when she is upset, she is easily embarrassed and doesn't like anyone to see her cry, no matter why she is crying.

This is the first time I've heard of a kid that age willfully
