Do you think this is okay?
In Nebraska, there's a new "safe haven" law that allows a parent or legal guardian to leave an unwanted child at any hospital without fear of prosecution. We've heard about similar laws in other states protecting newborns ... but what makes the Nebraska law different is that parents and caregivers are allowed to surrender older kids too.
In two separate incidents over the weekend, a 44-year-old woman dropped off her teenage nephew, saying the boy had behavioral problems that she couldn't handle anymore. The woman is the boy's legal guardian.
In the other case, a mom dropped off her 11-year-old boy, saying she could no longer care for him. We know raising a tween or teen boy is no walk in the park, but should abandoning an older child be legal?
