I'm guessing because they are lazy arses who have forgotten they have the ability to carry their own bags and can't be doing with the hassle of looking after their own kids. personally i don't see whats wrong with locking the kids in the closet under the stairs whilst you go out.

i don't think they are allowed out of the house...but probably ok to supervise kids swimming in the pool from the side, even though they don't swim...
