Toddler Pronounced Dead, babysitter charged...,0,5802119.story

Theres the link to the story , if it doesnt show up, I'll post it in the answers below. This story just broke my heart. Being a babysitter myself, I can not fathom hurting someone elses child. I can't fathom hurting my own either, of course...but to have the audacity to hurt another mothers child?My God...what is wrong with people? I know taking care of toddlers is frustrasting, damn...I've had 3 with me all week! But I would NEVER EVER allow myself to lose control and lash out on a baby like that!
Its people like this woman that gives us good babysitters a bad wrap. Can you imagine how that poor mother must feel? THe guilt of leaving her child with someone who hurt her?Shes probably pondering over what her last moments must have been like, she must have been so scared. That poor little angel. May God Bless her little Angel soul.

  • I'm lucky to be able to stay at home. With the second, I was touring daycares, and miserable, crying all the time, nothing looked good to me. The more I see this stuff the luckier I realize I am.

  • She didn't fault the mom. She explained why she is a stay at home mom.

  • This is what makes trusting someone with our kids so scary..some of us have to work and don;'t have family to help so yes we have to trust someone with our kids.

  • Sweetpeas3mom- You can't fault the mom for leaving her child in the care of someone. Not everyone has the means to stay home with their kids.

    That being said. It is so sad when grown adults don't have to control and common sense to be trusted with a child!!! It makes me so mad to think that someone could do this to a baby!!!

  • Everytime I read about doing something like this to a kid, my heart just breaks! I honestly believe, they should reserve the worst of the worst punishments for people who would hurt a child.

  • How sad

  • even SAHMs are capable of hurting their child(ren)...just sayin'.

    its a terrible to happen to any child (i didn't read the link/details), having someone hurt them, even to the point of death. no child deserves an angry adult lashing out at him/her. and i'm sure the mother was shocked, though no doubt, will blame herself at some point. (that's what is sad, also. )
