  • Neglect! No way around it. My dad got a child care provider charged with neglect because she left my sister and three other younger children (between about 9 months and 2 years) outside in the middle of the day in July while she was inside watching soap operas. My dad showed up early to get my sister and found the kids outside so assumed that the provider was out with them. He didn't find her out there so went inside to find her and she was laying back in a recliner watching some soap. My dad snatched up my sister, grabbed the contact list off the fridge and started calling the other parents. They filed a suit against her. There wasn't even a dog involved and she got 4 counts of child neglect and got her license pulled without any hope of renewal.
