I'm sitting here watching "Amber's Story" on lifetime about that little girl who the alert was named after...and...well...did her mom really let her 9 year old daughter and 5 year old son ride off to another street without her supervision??? Is she stupid??? Please tell me lifetime is dramatizing it and in real life she was walking with them, she got knocked out and the dude took the girl then???

No. Back when all of this happened it was normal to let your kids ride around the neighborhood unsupervised.

Still, child abduction wasn't new back then...common sense regardless of where you are is to watch your kids. This only happened 16 years ago...there were way more abductions before this...Smh...

I was 8 at the time and unfortunately my mother barely watched me outside of the house and luckily I didn't get abducted...I would never allow it then or now. My children are way more important than anything else...

things happen in life, we cannot really control everything........ think about this girl being abducted in her bedroom, fortunately she was found and now grown up and recently got married (I forgot her name).  We just all do our best as a parents and hope that this will never happen to our kids.

Yes things happen but it should be common sense to watch your kids playing outside, period. Call me weird but I don't care if it's 1860 or 2012, I am going to watch my kids play outside. People are crazy! I would never be able to forgive myself if something like this happened to my baby.

I agree. Now we have all learned to watch out and to be more careful.
