I have made up version A of the example below. My non-native English speaking friends' revisions is the B version.

(1a) Where are you going? Why are you leaving your kids with me? Bring them with you. Don't go away and let me look after them for you.

(1b) Where are you going? Why are you leaving your kids with me? Bring them with you. Don't go away or let me look after them for you.

I think my version sounds better because your going away and letting me look after your kids are two sequential steps. That means, you have to leave them with me first and then have me look after them.

Who's version is correct? I really appreciate your time and help. Thanks.
