Did you hear about this? Baby drowns in tub while mom is on Facebook....

How can someone not take 10 minutes out of their day, away from Facebook of all things, to bathe their child with 100% of their attention? I don't even leave my 2 year old alone in the bath....and that's considering that I don't plug up the tub with water. How sad.

  • I hate that some people want to be parents and then dont give their kids their undivided attention when they need it the most.

  • That's just heart breaking.... Parents need to pay attention. Just because they are 2 and can stand and move around doesnt mean they cant drown in that tub...

  • That is so sad, I mean 13 months. My kids are almost 5 and 3 and I don't leave them alone for more than a few seconds.

  • I would never do that with a young child. Now I do leave my 6 and 7 year olds while they are bathing and get on facebook. Its the only time of the day when they aren't yelling at me.
