Enabling Child Abuse
by: JWC

Child abuse is inexcusable. For a parent to attempt to deny responsibility because a caregiver and not them was responsible for inflicting the damage to the baby is also inexcusable.
Every parent has the responsibility to ensure their child is placed in a proper care facility when they require someone else to care for their child. I take it that this case is still being heard and can only hope that these parents are dealt with appropiately.

I agree with JWC

Hope these parents get what's coming to them! How could they let their lawyer argue that because no one's been charged with child abuse that the case should be dismissed??? Really now! Everybody wants to pass blame and not take responsibility for their actions. But what about that helpless little baby girl? It was their job as parents to take care of their baby. Let them rot in jail for not protecting her!

Charging parents with abuse
by: Monika

I'm a 44-year-old single mother of a 15-year-old boy, and I would like to charge my mother with child neglect, child abondonment. Here us my story. My mother had left her 3 underage children with an abusive father, I was 3, my brother was 6, and my sister was 9. She new that my father was abusive, but didn't do anything to stop it. At the age of 14 I left my father and fostermother who had mentally abusive (father's abuse was sexually and mential, and physological abuse. From the age of 14 til today, I'm trying to cope with this again. I try to find the mother instinct in her, and to no avail have been always disappointed. Can't hold on to jobs, I have been in abusive relationships all my life. I have been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder form a professional doctor. The question I seek is, can I still charge my mother after all these years with abondonment, neglect and verbal abuse???

Sincerely yours,
Monika
