Perhaps they should have taught this boy their cell phone number so he could have called his parents.. Mom.. Dad ... I think you left something... being the middle child sucks.

A reasonable person would have stopped having babys around 3-4. I hope he has a great paying job to handle 14+ children. I am sure it was not intentional and no one else is perfect. Even management courses that to be effective have teams of 10 but no more than 20 then factor fatigue.
Please change that to read "any sane person" can you imagine having 14 children WOW

Or he could always use this as blackmail.
"Mom, Dad, can I have that bike?"
"NO?"

Thats a football team that they have, I can see how 1 could be left LOL. But w/ a family that big & traveling then they should always take extra precautions & do a head count every time they get in & out the vehicle in order to avoid situations like this one. But im glad he was found quickly & not snatched up by anyone.

14 kids + 2 parents = Minibus + CDL for the drivers. More kids = bigger bus.

I don't care what your religious beliefs are, or how much you love children. There is NO sense in having that many children.

Glad that he was found unharmed. Always do the head count, especially with that many kids.

I agree that having that many children is crazy, especially in this day and time. If they didn't notice he was gone until they put the kids to bed, did they not realize that they were short one child during dinner?

Or why didn't the other 13 kids not notice that their little brother was missing? "shhh, don't tell mom and dad, that means more food for us at dinner."

How can they not be charged? Are they prominent people or something? Can you imagine what could have happened to this child in an hour?
