As an Orlando resident, I'd like to correct part of that headline. The part where the mom taking the daughter to Orlando is considered "good". It's still hot as hell here, Halloween Horror Nights is OK but expensive when you factor in parking, food, and vaccinations, and the roads are approximately as safe as kicking roadside debris in Afghanistan.

That being said, I've also lived fairly close to Port Charlotte, and I suppose it's just about a wash. Could have been worse. Could have been Englewood.

In her defense, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal is awesome. Definitely the best of any park in the area.

So the 10 year old isn't mature enough to take care of things when mom's away for a couple days?

I'd leave my kid (7) at home for a couple days if I had to. He can cook for himself, clean up after himself, and knows the necessary phone numbers to call in case of an emergency. If his grandparents lived with us, he could take care of them too (he already does when we visit them).

Parents should be able to determine whether or not kids are old enough to stay home alone, not nosy do-gooders.

Can someone please explain to me why it is not extremely rare to find a set of humans who willfully live in a house like that? What the fusk is it that allows a human brain to find that acceptable? Why is that easier than just taking out the trash?. I could have that place looking 100 times better in just 10 minutes by throwing 99% of the crap away. WHY CANT THEY DO THAT? HOW CAN AN ENTIRE HOUSE OF PEOPLE DECIDE ITS OKAY TO LIVE AMONGST FILTH?

If a 10-year-old doesn't know how to use a can opener, she's not immature; she hasn't been taught a basic life skill by a mom who obviously doesn't give a damn about anyone but herself.

FTA: "Detectives found a can of tomato soup on the kitchen counter that had multiple punch marks trying to open it. The 10 year old said she didn't know how to use a can opener; she also said she tried to cook spaghetti but couldn't find what she needed. "

FTA: "The sheriff's office received a call Sunday evening from a neighbor after one of Warner's other daughters, a 10-year-old, came to her home saying she was hungry. " 

Your 7 year old has a much, much more responsible parent than this 10 year old has. In this case, the 10 year old needed that nosy do gooder and in fact went asked for help. A very 'YMMV' moment, especially when children are involved.

My kid doesn't know how to use a can opener. We only use fresh organic produce and anti-biotic free meats in our kitchen. We don't use anything canned or in a tube or frozen.

I can sympathize a bit. Last year I left my 4 year old and 1 year old behind while I took my 12 year old nieces to Disneyland instead. (But I left them with their mom and fully abled grandparents.)

I think it is really awful that she has depression that causes her an inability to clean up the house. I think taxpayers should fork over enough money to get her a maid. Of course, in a society as wealthy is ours, it really should be a fundamental right for her to not have a dirty house. So I advocate the buying of a new house for her every time hers gets dirty. It's not her kids' fault the house is dirty. And it clearly isn't her fault.

And now we have both parents in jail, and it's really a shame that the kids have to be put through that, and the parents have to have no kids that grew up without parents in jail. So I think the taxpayers should fork over enough money so that this couple can have some more kids, and give them enough money that it is no burden for them to raise the kids. Everyone should be allowed to raise kids who don't have parents in jail. In fact, it should be a fundamental right.

Well, I certainly won't put you down, but from the article, it's obvious they had canned goods lying around, in which case the kid should know how to use the food-obtaining machine.

My aunt and cousins used to live in a house like that. I don't know what this chick's problem is, but my aunt was an alcoholic and drug addict. My mom called CPS on multiple occasions, and they actually went there and didn't take the kids away.

My aunt went to jail for a month, and left the kids (12, 11, and 9) some money and told them not to tell anyone. (It was summer.) One of them came to our house and just didn't go home...which happened a lot, so we didn't think anything of it.

For awhile there, they had chickens running around the house, and then there was the time that one of the kids brought home a pair of rats which multiplied. The oldest took a gun to them to get to his bedroom, which had become overrun by said rats while he was in reform school. 

They condemned the house after they moved.

I wasn't doubting the legitimacy of your story. Just the facts don't seem to hold-up to 2012:

1) CPS not removing kids
2) Kids playing with rats (not with today's options)
3) "Reform school" seriously?

People get reported to cops all the time for hoarding and filth regardless if they have kids or not. The neighborhood starts to smell. And the kids/grandma neglect thing---what about that suggests any particular ethinicity? I'm not aware of some ethnic stereotype about neglect. Now socioeconomic CLASS stereotyping, sure. But not racial or ethnic.

I don't watch Hoarders regularly, but I'll stream a bit on Netflix when I feel unmotivated to clean up. Those people always seem to be white.

it's all so sad. Depression is a mutherfarker.

not that it makes it ok to have kids and a feeble old lady living in shiat. it's not ok. but this mom clearly feels remorse - is there anything that could have been done to prevent a situation like this?

Probably not. Hoarding is one of the weirdest mental disorders around. People with it seem to have zero insight into their disease--if you watch "Hoarders", you'll hear them say things like "I need to organize my things so I can go through them" or "I need to keep this stuff in case I need it some day" about stuff that's clearly rotten or broken. They'll be clearly remorseful or anguished if their kids get taken or someone gets hurt, no doubt about it--and yet they STILL won't be able to clean up or throw shiat out. They're not lying or faking--they truly can't understand why people don't see that they "need" their stuff.

Really, the only thing to do would be to remove the kids, maybe place them with a relative or friend; and let mom live in her mess until she's able to recognize what she's doing. Forced cleanings usually do not work, simply because hoarders can't see their own junk. But it's not fair to the children to make them live that way.

AverageAmericanGuy: So the 10 year old isn't mature enough to take care of things when mom's away for a couple days?

I'd leave my kid (7) at home for a couple days if I had to. He can cook for himself, clean up after himself, and knows the necessary phone numbers to call in case of an emergency. If his grandparents lived with us, he could take care of them too (he already does when we visit them).

Parents should be able to determine whether or not kids are old enough to stay home alone, not nosy do-gooders.


Just so we're clear here - the house looks like that and you're blaming the ten-year-old for not being mature enough to take care of things while Mom's away?

Not baggin' on you at all, but I'm just really enjoying the cognitive dissonance of reading the phrase, "We only use fresh organic produce and anti-biotic free meats," written by someone whose online nom de plume is AverageAmericanGuy. Because, according to an informal poll of the people I run into on a daily basis, the Average American Guy is currently spooning unlabeled horse meat out of a can with tortilla chips that are half sugar because organic is what them Commie Islamists eat.
