The mother shouldn't have been aware that her loud party drove her 4 year old to sleep in the car? The fault begins with her and ends with the idiot who drove the car.
I'm sorry Hime, but what your parents did was wrong as well.
Going to top the story for parenting at its best...
Here in Vegas, there is a family who has several kids.
On getting back home one day, they didn't realize their youngest (4 years old), who is also disabled, never made it into the house.
The child was left in the car for 17 hours. Vegas, where summers get to 120 outside, inside a car it gets over 140F.
The parents thought the oldest child took care of the youngest. They had no idea.
Seems that the parents usually came home and went into their room, the only clean and tidy room in the house. They don't keep track of the kids, even during meals, and they don't check on the kids before going to bed themselves.
The only problem I see here is why the mother didn't get the kid a sitter. I mean, this could have happened over a several minute or hour period, we don't know. Angels, you can't honestly tell me that you expect parents to know 24/7 where their children are (definitely), can you? For all we know, the kid was going to crash in her room and her mother knew, but then the kid decided it was still too loud inside so the kid snuck out. It may have only been minutes after she snuck out that the random woman who took the car drove off.
If anything, I'd say it's the nut who drove off and didn't notice the kid in the car.
People are very judgmental and very quick to throw other parents under the bus. It's like a goddamn competition these days. Parents try and eliminate each other so that they're the only ones left, it's weird. Also, I guarantee you that if this kid was 13 instead of 4, it wouldn't be as big a deal to some people. Doesn't that strike you as wrong?
