If you leave your baby in a hot car you are a selfish pig and your child should be taken away from you. If you leave your child in the car it is because you are lazy, and stupid. Having a baby is a huge responsibility and a huge gift. I am thrilled that Georgia father is getting a murder charge for leaving his 22 month old in the 92 degree blazing sun ALL DAY. First of all I have a few questions. My kids never went to day care. I am lucky. But I imagine that if my child did go to day care all day and it was just a little baby I would call during the day a few times to check up on him. Do parents not do this? How could a mother let her husband who never drives the child to day care, drive him, and then never call to check up on him? Am I the only mother out there who would call to make sure my husband dropped off the kid? I know I would be like, Honey, how did the drop off go? Did you remember to give him this and that? So it is pretty obvious that these two pigs, the husband and wife wanted this child dead. I read an article last week where a mom blogged about how she is in a support group for mothers who left their child in the car and the child died. She is guilt ridden every day. And she wants forgiveness because people make mistakes. Uh, no. I am not forgiving you. I never left my kid in the car to die. I never left my baby in the bathtub to drown. I never left my kid at the mall. Am I a bettet parent? Uh, yes. And it takes special care to raise an infant to adulthood. Our society has become a society of moron mothers texting while their babies are running into the street. We are country so self absorbed that people are more interested in chatting on social media than talking to their own families in person. We are so careless that we disregard our little babies and just accept year after year dozens of parents killing their kids in an oven chamber. Every summer there are 39 deaths, of little babis who baked in their parents cars. And so this one man, this one example of this slob in Georgia, I hope will be a start of more parents getting charged with murder. It is murder! Take time to care for your children and remember that THEY COME FIRST NOT YOU! YOU ARE NOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!

That just broke my heart. I realize that this doesn’t offer total peace for you at the moment BUT …..what are WE doing wrong. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child just too bad the village does not accept that role anymore. They are suffering in silence like you. Because we no longer have that “universal front” in either... [Read more >>]
I just read your article about bullying and while I agree on most
points, I have to disagree with you about some others. I didn't see
the news story you saw,but I can tell you that it isn't always
possible to move a child to another school. Our daughter was harassed
in one school she went to for being gay. We were living in a small
town on the... [Read more >>]

Also, grab the plastic hooks for... [Read more >>]
