  • Some people just don't have common sense or motherly instincts and it is so sad.

  • I doubt she just let her kid play w the bobby pin. It was probably just on the floor or something. I try not to be so critical, children are going to get hurt eventually no matter how cautious the parent. I do agree though...most people know what is going to happen if something like a bobby pin is stuck in a socket.

  • thats why they have covers for outlets...they are very needed in any house that kids are in or will be in.

  • Yes, outlet covers... but the bobby pins are more likely to cause injury to a two year old than the outlet.
