Before posting here, please read this sticky and keep guideline 23 in mind:

23. No posts harshly dissecting parenting moments of others since we desire to humbly cultivate a heart attitude of grace and not judgment towards other mamas. We all struggle at times as parents and have much to learn, and GCM's focus is to provide tools and information for each of us to parent more effectively. Posts voicing some frustration regarding choices made by others can be okay, but it needs to be within the overall context of seeking understanding or ideas for better responses in the future.

I thought these two statements we rather contradictory:

"A four-year-old kid should not be roaming the house at night unsupervised," Reece said. "What she was trying to do was keep the child safe."

*********and then directly below it*********

Layers of thin, long bruises -- old and new -- stretched from Sean's bottom to his shoulder blade, the autopsy said. In addition to the binding, Paddock had been whipping the boy with a plastic plumbing pipe, Johnston County sheriff's deputies have said.

Investigators say Paddock had also been whipping Sean's 8-year-old sister and 9-year-old brother with the thin, flexible pipes. She faces felony child abuse charges in connection with their injuries.



She was trying to keep the child safe by beating him, and smothering him. Why couldn't she have put up a baby gate, or better yet, helped him go back to sleep? Some "mother".

ITA esp for the family who he was taken from.

I have a friend who is very into Ezzo stuff & through our conversations I have discovered that since her first response is to spank for "disobedience" she rarely thinks of any other creative & more effective way to discipline. She was spanking her baby (under a year) b/c he learned how to climb out of his crib & she couldn't get him to stay in any other way. When I mentioned crib tents she was really quiet for a while and then said something along the lines of "that would have worked better". But it never occurred to her to do anything other than spank.

It makes me angry to think about this, especially as we are headed into fostering with the hopes of adopting. They LIED--they knew they were NOT suppose to physically touch a child and they LIED. The funny thing is that if their own children lied we all know what they would have done to them with that piping.

I am digusted and sickened........she murdered him and now it is she who needs to suffer the consequences of her actions. Whatever those consequences are, may she never be allowed to harm another child.

Huge irony there... . I just skimmed through her other article http://www.newsobserver.com/141/story/434403.html and don't get why anyone would think that this would be a good way to raise kids .

That was me with my first toddler. *tears* And at the time, I would have thought crib tents were for "lazy" parents.

I'm sorry... that mindset has always really made me . It's it lazier to spank them and not think about creative ways to solve the problem without it?

that poor baby was tortured from the moment he stepped foot in that house. Coming from someone who has experienced the terror of near suffocation that poor baby I only hope that he fell asleep and passed quickly

My heart is too.
I'm glad Mandy is still on top of this and not letting it fade away.
