The boy was found wandering in the woods and told police he was lost. The mom, Stephanie A. Bales, said she had left him on a swing set as she went to play disc golf. She says she had been playing for 20 minutes.
The swing set is 150 to 200 feet from a quarry, which consists of unfenced cliffs above deep water with no lifeguard. What was this mother thinking?!
You'll recall that May 22 was "Take Our Children to the Park ... And Leave Them There Day." But we doubt that this is what founder Lenore Skenazy had in mind!
Bales faces a maximum of nine months in jail.
Do YOU think she deserves jail time?
