Today, I arrived home. I'd left for a business trip 5 days earlier, and trusted my husband with our young boys. As soon as I stepped in the door, I noticed my son had thinner hair than when I'd left. He then showed me an empty container of Nair. FML

I'm sure it's hard to supervise two young boys, they're probably pretty wild at that age. Not that I'm saying it's an excuse for them to misbehave! But part of the blame also lies with the mother, who I'm going to assume was the proud owner of said Nair.

I think what the real FML here for her is the fact that her husband is not responsible enough to take care of the boys without her. BUT it is a funny story to remind the kid about when he's older lol my mom would ask me if I remember when (insert childhood story) and I would laugh and wonder what went through my young head!

You can only keep a leash so short on a child. They will and do get into trouble. The kid getting into nair would take all but a few minutes of being alone, especially if they found it while using the restroom. To blame the husband is silly.

#29 - Actually, that product (Nair) can do some serious damage and I doubt the child used it as instructed on the bottle since he thought it was a good idea to use it on his head. Those chemicals burn away the hair and its imperative that the directions are followed (IE on the skin for no more than 10 minutes or you start getting chemical burns.)

Also, it causes hair to grow back thinner/less each time it is used, so the child could have done permanent damage to his hair.

The fact of the matter is, if the Dad wasn't paying attention to the son to see that he was playing with dangerous chemicals, imagine if the child had ingested it rather that just slathering it all over his head!

How is it the mothers fault? She left on a business trip and left her trustworthy husband in charge. She had no choice but to leave. Her fault how?

Does no body on here realize how curios kids are? OP didn't have to have it "in reach" for the child to get to the Nair. The son was probably digging in a cabinet or climbing on top of a counter.
I'd also like to point out that anyone thinking the husband messed up everything is not correct. OP's husband might have been dealing with the other son while this son was going on a scavenger hunt.

Of course! Him and his friends were having a prank war and filming it for YouTube.

Ahh YouTube where the masses go to get their 15 mins. of shame and fame.

In five seconds a kid can do a lot more than just get away with using a bottle of Nair. I doubt OP's husband was encouraging the situation so he can record it and post it to YouTube.
Give a guy a break.

At least he's a boy and boys tend to atleast shave their heads anyway. For a girl, that'd be disastrous. Try not leaving that stuff out with mischievious boys around next time.
