Gambling Moms Leave Kids in the Car
No parent is perfect and I’m sure we have ALL made mistakes – I’ll be the first to say I know I could have made better choices along the way, but a story like this one makes you wonder what on earth these moms were thinking!
Two moms in Florida decided that it would be a good idea to leave four kids in a running car, unattended, so they could go inside and throw their money away, gamble. This incident occurred at night in a dark parking lot. Supposedly the moms were just going inside to use the restroom – but I’m pretty sure they could have found a more family friendly pit stop. Or here’s an idea – the moms could have taken turns so that they kids didn’t have to stay in the car by themselves.
But I seriously doubt stopping at the casino was really about using the bathroom. I’ve been a mom for 8 years, through many trips, and I can’t remember once when I had to go to the bathroom when one of my children didn’t. There were four kids in that car – none had to use the restroom? Or is the truth that they were told to stay in the car while mommy had a little fun inside? This story is just full of holes and shows how irresponsible some parents are.
To these moms: Next time, get a sitter – if you have enough money to gamble, you have enough to pay someone to watch your kids.
