It is awful that this 8 year old boy was left alone at a bus stop. Hopefully his mom will get tne help she needs and eventually become the mother this child is in need of and deserves.I do think "child abuse" is a poor choice for her crime. This seems more like "child endangerment".
I am reading everyone bashing this mom (who probably grew up the same way). How many parents leave there children in places while they go off and do things? Parents let there even younger than 8yr olds go off to the store for candy or to the park or just aimlessly roam w/o supervision and to ride the public buses. Many parents drop there kids off even young ones at the MALL or water parks and the state fair unsupervised!! All of these situations can lead to dangerous situations.Such as child predators,weather, physical injury and many more.Somehow it is ok to leave your child alone anywhere if you are running errands or just want them out of your hair, but if its to do drugs its a crime. Seems like a double standard to me.You may not,(I know I dont nor could I imagine doing so) but many many others do. Children at any age left alone in public places are in harms way.
