Irresponsible Parents Make Me Sick!  

We received some news this morning that a little girl drowned. That little girl was 11 and was my son's first crush. I broke the news to my son this morning because I didn't want him to hear from someone at school. He's been in his room crying and it just breaks my heart. I don't know what to say to him or anything. I'm at a loss.

I am so mad about this whole thing. How can you leave your child, who you know can't swim, with a friend at their swimming pool unsupervised??? I swear I just want to strangle her mother!!!!! WHERE WERE THE ADULTS?? Our job as adults and, more importantly, as parents are to protect our children from harm. There are some things that can't be helped but this is not one of them. It was the parent's responsibility to make sure the children were supervised. More than likely, there was an assumption that everything would be ok but you should never assume and always take precaution!

What next?

    I am totally with you on this one. We just bought a house with an above ground pool. Thank goodness we have a fenced yard. I don't want kids sneaking in while I am at work.

    Thanks for playing 20 questions! Better luck next week, Jayme is good!

    Thank you for checking out my blog. I will take what you said into consideration. As to this post, I see bad parenting all day long while I'm working at the mall. It's inexcusable and ridiculous.

    Mic Man~~It really is a shame that kids have to be raised by sh*tty parents. If you don't want the responsibility of kids then close your legs!

    Thanks for stopping by. And come back again;)
