There was no parental control. At one point one of the children tried to vacate through the Emergency Exit, which set off the alarm. It went off for ten minutes!
One dad, who followed husband’s lead in asking about what time to return, got the same, “You MUST stay, and if you want her to eat, that’s on you” spiel. Instead of calling his wife, he looked at the Mom and said, “Yeah, Right” and took his child and left.
