This is not simply a tragedy but a common problem in American Culture. Often the
boyfriend of the mother is the worst sort of abuser who could care less about a
small daughter. What does the mother of the deceased little girl do?? Preaches
as if she is some evangelist about not shaking a small child. A mother who is
alone must be very circumspect in regard to the men she allows to come into her
life as boyfriends.
Warning PARENTS?This child wasn't killed by a parent. This child was
killed by a person who this young woman brought into her home, apparently as a
lover and babysitter. Sadly, a new boyfriend is NOT an acceptable
babysitter for another man's child.We've seen it all too
often.Yes, I know the mother had to go to work ... but the child had
a father, grandparents and other relatives.Please, people. IF there
is a young single mother in your family, please help her out with child care.
Please also help her understand who is an appropriate person to bring into her
home. People really don't just "snap".
Yea, it gets frustrating. I just walk out of the room and/or put on some ear
Another case of boyfriends abusing kids. I cannot count the times I've read
news stories since I was a teen in the '80s of boyfriends abusing their
How sad.Even good parents can get overwhelmed. Don't be afraid
to seek help or to offer it.My heart goes out to all those impacted
by this tragedy.
