Three year old killed for not taking her coat off......
I realize that there will be those people who will comment on this and say things like - you can't live in fear, or some people have no choice etc....
So, before I say what I came here to say - I will say this.
I don't see it as 'living in fear' - I see it as being realistic and aware!
Next, people do have a choice. If you can't afford to have a child and stay home and take care of the child, or if you get pregnant by mistake thats no excuse!
First of all, there ARE many many forms of birth control. Next, I wouldn't have a child if I knew that I couldn't provide for my child. Sure, I may want a child, but I would have to think of how that childs life would be, if I were to selfishly get pregnant, knowing I couldn't provide for the child - or If i knew I would have to work and place the child in day care.
I married at 21. My husband and I worked and finished school and did all the party stuff. Then when I was 33, we PLANNED for a baby. We knew we were done with the parties and had our financial path set.
Think about this for a moment. You take your kid to a day care, or baby sitter. The day care person/sitter more then likely has kids of their own and or has other kids they take care of daily. That means they are with kids alllllll day everyday. Some of those kids may come as early as 5am or 6am, and stay as late as 6pm or 8pm. Meaning that day care provider or babysitter never really gets any down time, and is more then likely over whelmed and stressed for the majority of their life or time while taking care of kids.
As parents/mothers we know that is can be stressful at times, taking care of our own kids. Because they are kids, and learning everything. They have tantrums, and do things they aren't supposed to be - but thats what kids do. SO imagine that sitter, that's their life. Every day all day, they don't get a break from it. Why would you place your prescious baby/kid in a place like that?
My husband and I, own a small business. So we both split the work day, so while one of us is at work for 5 hours, they other is at home with our child.
I do not trust my young child with anyone. I'm not blaming the parents for this childs death. I realize that most parents feel it's their only option, and they think it's ok or normal because so many people use sitters or day cares.
But the world is not getting any kinder. In fact the world is growing more evil by the day.
