My husband is careless!! Fire hazard

Answered 5 days ago

My husband never thinks and tonight he put my kids safety at risk. I’m pretty livid right now. My kids were in bed ready to go to sleep, i had a shower and thought i had better check them again. I walk in, he’s put their lamp on with A CUSHION over top of it to block out the brightness of the light, and it had already begun catching fire about 20cm from their bed in which they were asleep at the time. I hate to think what may have happened if i hadn’t walked in. I am so sick of his carelessness with everything but tonight is a whole new level of stupidity!! Thoughts??

Have an answer?

I would take the kids and fuck right off, my kids have known since about 5years old not to cover lamps! I don’t even allow them to be left on overnight. They have a battery operated ditch light they can turn on when they get up in the night that is stuck to the wall. If the kids leave anything charging (watches, drones etc and go to bed I toss it and they have only been warned once) if they leave it charging and leave the house I take the gadget off them for a week.
