NO good, loving mother/father leaves children alone for 3 hours without another responsible adult there to be in charge.
this is indeed neglect/endangerment. and homicide, as that is what resulted from her 3 hour absence.
take her child away and send her to jail.
so very very selfish on part of mother, and extremely stupid.

I find it disturbing that the 3 year old would admit being responsible. my daughters at 3 years old used to bang thier crying dolls until they stopped crying. they dont know any better at that age and just this headline alone upsets me. That 3 yr old is blaming himself, its not his fault.. Its the moms fault, parents are 100000000% responsible for what their kids do at that age. that kid should of been left completely out of it, he shouldnt of even been questioned about it because he is 3

NOt that it makes any difference but the child will be 4 in march...And he is a big "4" year old at 40 lbs...BUt he didn't know any better, he probably just wanted the babt to stop crying...

Agreed, but never have they been so encouraged by society to thrive. The percentage is higher then ever. Can you imagine the money we would have for people that really need it if we simply stopped the disability fraud that goes on. Time to start dropping the hammer on the people that abuse the system. They take away from those that truely need help.

Wow, way to make your point. It's all about your feelings so facts don't mean much. I hate it when the sheep complain. The truth bother you? She is a scab, and we support her, so in a way we are responsible for her. She is a child because we do everything for her. So who is to blame? Her?. We don't ask her to support her children but we think she can take care of them properly. Sounds like a society in denial as to the results of bad social programs.

You are right,and I would suggest that by the time a baby is three,almost four,any parent knows how that toddler reacts to stress,and that the possibility of severe harm to an infant from that child could exist during prolonged stress without the close oversight of a responsible adult!
This woman is a prime candidate for a long prison term,and is totally responsible for this tragic event!
