/But that mommy in the suburbs who's strung out on Diet Coke and Xanax just parks the kids in front of Sprouts or Disney Channel while she surfs her Well Endowed Dating site is all good.


Mine love Sprout and Disney channel while I surf Fark. But I prefer Dr. Pepper and Klonopin.

Martin said a woman who works for a home health agency was outside her client's home when she spotted the girls in the road and rushed to stop traffic before bringing them into the residence.

I hope they didn't fall asleep. She could be charged with kid napping.

Flakeloaf: pounddawg: I'm just amazed that we were screened more for adopting a dog then we were when we had a child.

/we weren't screened at all for the child.

The pet adoption people are screening for potential pet owners who understand the burdens of ownership, take it seriously and will provide whatever environment they think is fittest. In other words, they are choosing people like themselves.

Put a government agency in charge of screening pregnancies, remember who owns the government and follow that throught through to its natural conclusion.


All the compassion of the IRS and all the knowledge of the DMV?

Your eugenics are showing.

I don't care. They aren't going to suddenly decide to be responsible, so why even give them a choice? Act like an animal and you will be treated like one.

fark you. Advocating the extermination of certain classes of people based on your perceived superiority is abominable. We're all animals, whether we choose to admit it to ourselves, or not. You are not some "enlightened one" because you were born into a better situation than others. Remember: The world needs strippers and waitresses and ditch-diggers, too. Oh yeah, and the chance that they might actually grow up to shun their parents lifestyles and, you know, make something productive out of themselves.

Sure, we have problems in this world right now, but advocating forced sterilization makes you sound like, well, I think you know. Now go have a good laugh with your buddies about effectively suggesting we kill off primarily minorities and other groups who live differently than you, racist.


Fark you too! If you expect me to pay for your life then I should get a say in how you live it. Don't want to do what I say? Fine, don't take my farking money. I am superior. I pulled myself out of being poor while the poor white-trash I grew up around stayed right where they were and started shiatting out kids that they couldn't afford after dropping out of school. Fark them.

Also, I'm not a racist. There are more poor whites than there are poor minorities. I don't care if they all starve, regardless of their race. I hate them equally.

Try adopting a child like you did the dog. They'll screen you then.

If you can make your own dog like you can a kid, you won't be screened for that.

I found a baby in the road in a rural area one time. He was about 15 months old, still quite the teetering tot. I kept asking him "Wheres momma?" and he pointed to a house about a quarter mile up the road. His parents didn't know he was missing, Toddlers are escape artists.

Calehedron: My two boys were both early risers and escape artists. First it was unlocking the door to wander and so I added a chain. They drug stools, boxes, chairs over to undo the chain. Bought wireless magnetic chimes for the 2 exterior doors and a pin at the top of the sliding patio door. That stopped the visits from the Sheriff's Deputies until they dialed 911 for fun a few years ago.

I am raising 2 Calvin clones despite my best efforts.


Best line from "The Change Up"
When other people's kids act badly it's because of poor parenting. When your kids misbehave it's because they need a nap or are going through a phase.

My nephew takes after me. I was the family escape artist until he came along. My sister was taking a nap with him and his twin sister upstairs. He manged to get past 2 baby gates and a flight of stairs, past his dad sleeping on the couch and into the kitchen where he ate a bag of hersey kisses. My BiL thought it was the dog rummaging around in the kitchen. I have a great picture of my nephew on the floor, chocolate all over his face surounded by kiss wrappers.

Now his sister is like me in that she likes to sleep in weird places and that has had the police called once. She likes sleeping in closets, behind couches anywhere it will be hard to find is where she sleeps.

i wish my kids would be that quiet when i was sleeping ...

my 20 month old can open a door. A chain on the door does do wonders, until they are tall enough to reach it by standing on a chair they pushed over to it.

put a bar up high on sliding glass doors too

My daughter is just now able to to reach the door handles so I am getting a kick out of these replies....

Seriously, though, I escaped the house as a toddler while my parents were sleeping, got into the car, released the parking brake and rolled it down the driveway. My parents woke up just as I was jumping out of the moving car. My dad barely stopped it from rolling into the street. They were also age 22 and 23 when this happened, and poor, so I'm sure they would have gotten the book thrown at them had anyone ever found out.

The second visit from Child Services was as equally uneventful and removal of custody or neglect charges were never even mentioned.

No doubt you came across as sharing the middle-class values that CPS filters all parenting through, unlike the poor suckers in TFA, who are now going to be FELONS because they allowed two toddlers to run them to exhaustion and then keep right on going. Those bastards, how dare they be poor and not have the resources or time to thoroughly child-proof a rickety mobile home.

(I'm not blaming you for this, Jixa. You just walked into my cone of snark, make a saving throw vs. breath weapon)

TFA reads like a pair of otherwise average parents who made a single mistake at the same time the three year old figured out how to open the front door.

Or they are a pair of irresponsible welfare queens who should be locked up. Or someplace in the middle.

Bad Journalism is bad.

From this article I could see two realities as just as likely.

An honest and terrible mistake that ruins this family of hardworking Americans who couldn't afford to fix the door on their trailer because they are having a rough economic patch and just trying to get by. The stress of providing for children during these bleak times led to exhaustion and they fell asleep and were so soundly asleep they did not wake when the youngsters did as is usually the case.

OR

The fumes from their meth lab overpowered the family and being younger and thus having functioning livers and kidneys that have not been damaged due to many years of substance abuse the toddlers were able to recover and awaken before their parents.
