No Child Left Behind? Not for These Moms

What is wrong with these people?!

loren story

Last month, drunk driver Lauren Story left her child at the crash scene when she tried to flee in a different car.

She had a blood alcohol level of .205, which is about two and a half times the legal limit, when she crashed into a car in the Walgreen's parking lot. She got into the other person's car and tried to flee, even though her child was in her car. The victim chased her down so she couldn't leave, and helped police identify her.

She is now facing several counts including DUI and endangering a child.

Over the weekend, a 17-year-old girl accused of shoplifting left her 2-month-old baby girl behind at Walmart as she fled from officers.

She tried to steal $59 worth of children's clothing. When the officer walked out to his car to get more paperwork to continue the investigation, the 17-year-old somehow slipped out of the loss prevention office and slipped away from store security officers, leaving her baby girl behind. Her baby is now in the care of Child Services.

It's hard to believe that anyone could purposefully leave their child behind ... but these moms did. What do you have to say to these deadbeat moms?

What a shame. I must say, just because you have a uterus doesn’t mean you need to use it!

There is not a lot of background information on this young woman. Does she have a history of heavy drinking? Is she on social assistance? Is she still in school? Where’s the father? What kind of relationship does she have with her parents and with the parents of the father? At 17 she is still a child herself so why is she referred to as a “deadbeat” mom? Where are the people in her community when she needs them?

Set her up with some counselling and if he is not abusive, get the baby’s father involved. Ensure she has enough support systems in place so she doesn’t fall through the cracks. Perhaps connecting her with Alcoholics Anonymous would be a good idea.

The question is not “who would leave their child behind?” but how can you put yourself your child and yourself in this position in the first place? Seriously, you get behind the wheel knowing you’re drunk WITH your child in the car? You go shoplifting WITH your child in the cart? Clearly, the disconnect with right and wrong happened before these mothers got caught.

These girls are just plain stupid and ignorant and not decent people. They should never get their children back, because it will happen again and maybe have a terrible outcome
