We are all mothers here or parents in some respect. Does it bother anyone else that there are so many questions/posts about drinking and partying? Who is watching the children when these "parents" are off doing this? It really bothers me mostly because my sister constantly (some times for days) leaves her 12 y/o twins home alone.

I would have to step in and take custody of the children if I was able to. That is child neglect if they are alone. I'm sorry your in this situation worrying over your sister's children. Your sis needs help of some sort. I wish you all the best, especially the children.

"Some people weren't meant to be parents"
As "harsh" as it may sound, it is true. My SIL was not meant to be a parent. She would have a baby then pass it to her mom to raise so that she (my SIL) could keep her "party-girl" lifestyle up. She would LITERALLY give the baby to her mom as soon as she left the hospital after giving birth. She has had three kids (two of which were born addicted to drugs at birth) and doesn't have custody, pay child support or visit any of them. She admits to being a bad mom and it doesn't bother her at all. She even brags about it when she's drunk or stoned (which is almost always). My older brother isn't much better himself.
