But this poses several what-ifs that need to be considered - because obviously this isn't the only time this has happened.
What if, for example, the child threw a temper tantrum and Daddy couldn't hear an incoming distress signal or tend to other such important things? What if child got sick and had to be taken to the bathroom immediately? Everyone knows these things happen - and they happen often with children.
There is no child who is problem-free or any parent who has absolute 100% control over their child.
If that *did* happen and a child did throw a temper tantrum and distracted Dad from doing his job - then everyone would be screaming "why did he have a child in the control room with him!"
I think it's a bit hypocritical (not of everyone, but of some) -because if something bad did happen everyone would be crying for his head on a plate.
