This news story ticked me off! No only is this mother young, but apparently she is doing drugs and drinking. She is only 19! Where are her parents? Isn’t this a great example of not communicating very well with your child.
Thank God that the baby was OK. Thank God that the car seat did its job! Thank God for people who pay attention and the cops that did their jobs.
I am not saying that young parents are the problem. However, when you are young I know from experience that your emotions can be a major influence.
It is pretty apparent that this young woman is pretty self absorbed and should have thought twice before becoming a parent.
Food for thought: If a woman is going to become a mother maybe a parenting class should be taken. Young parents and most first time mothers are clueless about the responsibility that it takes to care for a child. Alcohol and drugs have no place in motherhood.
It is interesting to me that there are so many women out there that have no business becoming parents and yet have several. And yet there are so many couples out there that are unable to have children. Which seems fair? Neither. Unfortunately life is not fair, I have learned that as I have gotten older.
But to recap where does this young girl get off putting her child in danger that way?
I hope she gets the full measure of her punishment.
Doesn’t this look like the face of a responsible mother!
