    But you know enough about them to leap to their defence, or is it that you just have to be a contrarian?
    Stat might be a lot of things but so far as I’m aware he was never in the Roman infantry.

      If it’s mum and teenage son then the son is probably the designated mule. Mum probably can’t manage to carry all the shopping on her own. They might be walking home.

      I know enough about me and my family to know my great galumphing special needs children can't be left alone in the house together despite presenting as 'normal' teenagers.

      So attacking those people you know nothing about is the same as attacking me, whom you also know nothing about.
      Attacking? Hyperbole much? Take a slower read of my initial post, it’s not as scathing as you’re painting it out to be.
      What?

      I guess there’s all manner of reasons why there could have been a youth in tow.
      What?

      plenty of parents plus one child, but when I say child I mean late teens. Surely, for everyone’s benefit, only the adult needed to make the journey?

      Tesco in Shoreham is the store I use.
      You are clearly turning on those parents with a child in tow, despite having no knowledge of their situation, as clearly proved by your initial response to me.

      Now sure in many cases you may well be correct, but not all, which is the point.

      The trauma inflicted on my adopted children at the pre-verbal stage of their development has left deep mental health wounds.

      They would probably be fine 6 out of 10 times but the potential for serious violent outbursts always looms large and over the last 10 years has taken it's toll on my mental health as well.

      I can't guarantee I am equipped to deal with walking in at the fall out out of an incident let alone them.

      So I prefer to do away with the whole stressful incident by just taking one with me.
      That in turn has now developed to leaving one in the car while I shop and maintain the harmony.

      So in answer to your question

      Sadly I am being serious when I say I can't leave my teenagers home alone.

      Being adopted myself I would be happy to listen to the challenges you have faced, on or off piste
