Good post and so true.

I get so fed up with the generalisations that fly about on these forums. The majority of people are normal, decent and law abiding. Why can't people see that its the minority who are the ones that get the headlines

Binge drinking, smoking, fashion - conscious youths, misbehaviour at school, petty crime, violence, racism, pub culture, peer pressure and irresponsible parenting are in various degrees the same the world over!

there's another thread - in The Lounge I think - where there is a bit of a heated debate (!) going on about the McCann's and the rights and wrongs of leaving your children unattended!

Trutje, implied on another thread that it was OK to leave your child unattended whilst you nip next door to the neighbors for a drink and it sounded like she did just that. There's a whole thread on bad parenting and negligence, that's quite heated.

Maybe you should get your facts right! It was about something I know a lot of people do!!
As an example that parents are human beings and not always aware of the dangers they put their children!!!!
But apparently they are all perfect on that thread

Had a quick look in the lounge but could not see anything you are relating to, but i am not into all that sort of stuff.
I like an easy life !!

Rubbish. You are right parents make mistakes. I went and took a shower and my 4 year climbed onto her bike seat and let herself into our pool area and went swimming. Some people might argue I was a bad parent, me I reckon I took my eye off the ball for 5 minutes. The McCanns didn't make a mistake or take their eye off the ball. They made a conscious decision to leave 3 children under 4 years old in an apartment alone. If you can't see that isn't a mistake then you are the most deluded poster on BE.

same here - my little one dashed out whilst I was in the shower too .... it only takes a second which exposes how dangerous it is to INTENTIALLY leave children unsupervised.

I was furious IM and I don't normally smack my girls but she got a swift hand around her backside that day mainly because I was afraid of what COULD have happened not necessarily what did happen. She hasn't done anything like that since, I think she could see the fear in my face.

and after they do something like that, and the anger has subsided you get tearful? I bawled after that and coudlnt get out of my head "what if"

having kids means eyes in the back of your head 24/7 - the little buggers!
