This is an accident, the family car is damaged, no doubt the parents are appalled by what has happened. It is clearly inappropriate to charge the parents with child endangerment. The prosecutorial decision-making in this matter is poor.

His mother was still in the bed? No wonder the boy wanted to get to school and have a bite of breakfast.
Who seen him off to school?---obviously nobody.
Who seen him to the bus stop?--obviously nobody.
Who kissed him good day at the door and say 'see ya later tater'?---obviously nobody.
Why did the boy not awaken his mom and tell her he had missed the bus?---obviously there is more to this than just taking the car.

Bless this babys heart. Chances are he was hungry. The mom and dad should be charged with child endangerment.
