I came across this sad story last week. This is the second time that the mommy side of this blog crosses over to the career portion of the blog. This woman was arrested for leaving her kids in the car while she went on an interview. She is a single mother who could not find a baby sitter in a time of need and had to make a decision that cost her a lot more than a job. Weigh in with your thoughts on the matter.
Personally, I think it’s an unfortunate situation. Should the windows been down more, probably. Could there have been any other place to leave the kids, like a local Y? Maybe, but maybe not. Let’s cut people some slack. We’ve become so helicopter parenty over so many non issues but people who do much worse get away scot-free.
What are your thoughts?
