How can a mother NOT protect their child?

I was watching something on CNN the other night where a 15 yr. old her got in a fight with a friend while she was at home. I mean that it was literally physical. The mother just stood there and watched her own daughter fight and was cheering her on. I would never let that happen in my own home, would you?

  • IT might sound horrible, but in my line of work (i work at a police dept) I see it everyday. Parents just standing by watching as their children physically and mentally are destructive to themselves. What's the most heartbreaking is hearing stories of babies/toddlers who don't have a say/can't protect themselves. It's scary to look around at the world we live in and to see the way some people raise (or don't bother raising) their children.
