What's wrong with that? Bedroom closet = perfect bachelor apartment size for a baby! Throw in a mini-fridge and a lava lamp - charge the little bastard $250/month rent.

Did anyone find his clean copper clappers while they were at it?

If only they manufactured some sort of miniature baby jail you could keep them in while you run errands.

Sad that in this day and age some babies still feel the need to hide in the closet and can't even come out to their own families. Get with the times people. It's 2014!

Stay classy Wichita!

I more shocked that they used a measured judgement to help the couple instead of immediately destroying their lives.

A closet is really just a small room,  is their a law or policy for how small a room can be before it's considered wrong to put a sleeping baby in it?

The child may have been left alone for perhaps 20 minutes before being discovered,

OH MY GOD CALL OUT THE MARINES!!!!

Actually, this is the reason for the whole sorry affair:
  Both parents work full-time, he said.


"They are trying, but their paychecks just don't go far enough," Norton said.


If both parents work full time and yet can't afford day-care...babby gets left alone in the house for a few minutes while mom takes dad to work because she doesn't want to wake him up and drag him down to the car. That's life on two paychecks below minimum wage.

If the child can turn on the tee-vee, he can surely watch out for himself for a couple of hours.

The dad works on the same street as he lives, that's probably close enough range for a baby monitor

As far as what makes a bedroom, it has to have a second point of egress. If the doorway is blocked by fire, there needs to be a window to go out.

Which actually is why leaving a sleeping tot alone even just to run a quick errand is such a horrendously bad idea. If there was a fire or other emergency, that baby was far too young to get out of the building. That IMO is the age at which a child should be left alone for even a few minutes: If there is an emergency such as fire, does the child know what to do, and are they old/mature enough to reliably do it.

Zero tolerance! Works for schools so...

Meh.


There was a young mother near me that went out clubbing several nights a week and she left her baby alone back home sleeping all the time.

Doing it once or twice for a few minutes just to make life a litter easier is one thing,  doing it for hours several times every week to go party is screwed up.

Putting your toddler in a playpen is perfectly acceptable.  But put a lid on that playpen and you're a monster.

Most likely did this every morning. Foolish.

Oh good god this is nothing. Read the websites "Bad Breeders" or "Hellbeasts" for run downs on baby beaters that will make your vision go red.

Babby's just trying to chill in his pad. Play some Xbone. Why the man keep getting up in his shiat yo?

My mom used to put the playpen out in the fenced in yard so I could be nearby while she was gardening. When I got old enough to be able to climb up the bars and out of the playpen, my Mom would spread a blanket on the ground and turn the playpen upside down and trap me in. Of course, this was the late 60's, so playpens looked more like wooden cages in those days.

Getting a kick... our second daughter was a very loud sleeper and we lived in a small 2 bedroom condo.  She kept us up at night, and kept her sister up if we put her in that room, so we ended up putting her crib in the closet. Before anyone calls CPS on us, it was a large walk-in closet joining the master bedroom, nearly room sized..and no we did not leave her in there to go out to the clubs.  She does not find the story as amusing as we do.
