She was in a car, in gear, seriously drunk and passed out. The headline should say "passed out" not "asleep". Did she hit anything on the way? Did she hit anyone? Anyone's pet? Is this her first drunken joyride?
She should get jail time, she should lose custody of the kids and she should have to PROVE she is a fit parent and be subjected to drug/alcohol testing in order to see these kids.
the US may say alcohol and drug addiction is an "illness", but I'm sorry, it is not cancer. It is a CHOICE to drink alcohol or not. She chose to drink, she chose to drive, she should be charged with DUI, child operating to endanger, child endangerment, child neglect... the list goes on.
These kids should also receive counseling to let them know they did the right thing, even if it got mommy in trouble. They were cold, underdressed and hungry. You know the parents are going to try to tell them not to alert anyone next time, but they have to be counseled to know what they did will only force their mother to get help.
I hope the father is a better parent!
They were cold, under dressed and Hungry? Where did you hear that? Are you just making that up?

A shout out to "A Mother," from Haverhill!

I agree with your prescription for this woman, and I'm all for calling things what they are and dealing with them directly.

HOWEVER... I also happen to be one of those "bleeding heart" liberals you attack.

How about this, Mother: we wait and see what the other has to say before we smear each other? We accord one another some respect.

When we agree, isn't it nice, and when we disagree, we listen and maybe learn. Who knows? we may influence one another's opinion and actually solve problems through compromise, instead of shouting at each other and feeling sanctimonious?

Put me down if you want, if it makes you feel better. I give you permission. But if it starts to get out of hand, seek professional help.
