<quoted text>At those ages 'clean up','chores'...at the age of 5 ...your nuts man! It's not the responsibility of the child at those ages to be cleaning up and making sure household chores get done, it's the responsibility of the adults in that household.
I agree, it is the parents responsibilites. But a child at 5 knows how to pick up after themselves and help with chores. My daughter is 2. After she plays with toys I remind her they need to go back in the playroom and in a toybox. I do the cleanup game with her, but she does help too. Never too young to learn to clean up. And she likes to help because she knows she will get a freeze pop out of it. lol When summer is done it will turn into a different treat and of course as she gets older it turns into an allowance for keeping up with her chores.
But I don't make her clean something she didn't do, just her own toys, or mess from a snack. She loves throwing out trash.

the kids will be put back into that squalor and it will not end until one of them dies and the disgraceful peice of feces of a mother and father are put in prison.
Hunan Services and CPS are not effective.. they do not do what little they have authority to do.. it waits for the autopsy.

My boyfriend knows the family,it's his close friends Brother and the family. I guess the Mother is really messed up on Meth or Pills or whatever. It's just sickening,because stuff like this happenes in Salem,but it's never talked about. Being poor is NO excuse for treating your children like this or living in filth. I say the parents be taken to jail and the Kids be taken to a place where they'll be looked after and can stay in good living conditions. This is just sickening. I myself look after my Father who has MS,And we don't have much but I look after him evrey day make sure hed fed and has what he needs.
This is just pitiful.......
