Were you ever forgotten by your parents or guardians?
Prompted by receiving a call from my niece's school saying that she is still there since none of her three adult guardians came to get her and couldn't be reached by phone. I was put on the list in case of emergency, since my mother is older and my brother is...dysfunctional...but I live an hour and a half away. Fortunately my sister-in-law answered my call and is on the way. She really needs to put the school on her important contacts list and learn to call them back when she gets a message. 😒
I was forgotten once at basketball practice. It took my parents a couple of hours to figure out I was missing. I don't think anyone stayed with me either. My whole family forgot my birthday one year, and all but one friend (this year too actually), but that's different than being responsible for a child's wellbeing.
