I'm sorry but many of these stories involve some kind of day care that was forgotten. That, I believe is the problem. In this day and age, jobs and money have taken the forefront in our minds instead of what really matters. Dropping the kid off at the daycare is just another check on the check list that could easily be forgotten and we're rushing to get to the problems at work, or on the phone talking more drama or problems. Children these days have taken a back seat to their own parents' lives. It's all about "don't give up too much of yourself just to be a parent". No. Fuck no. You give up yourself and your dumb ass career for your children. If you were with your kid almost 24/7, it would be second nature to keep track of their every whereabout. Instead, they are just another asset to be tossed from day care to the dinner table then off to bed. Even after reading some parents' testimonies that it happened to, I see no excuse. I see minds being too wrapped up in theirselves, their jobs and problems. No excuse for leaving your child to a horrible death, a slow, horrible death. It angers me because its just another way this world has gone to hell.
