How absolutely appalling. What stupid brainless parents of both parties. Is this normal in USA? (a 12 year old babysitting?)Suzy
Suzy,plenty of 12 year olds are responsible babysitters. this unfortunate boy is clearly a psychopath. could well have been born that way.i can only wonder what the point of this posting is. don't we all know that there are many evils in the world? more than a few children will starve to death today in various parts of the world,(among many other horrible injustices) but they don't make the news because it is not unusual for this to happen.bub
Not all twelve year olds are equal
or parents for that matter. There was a time when a child/young lady of twelve would have been responsible for this and much, much more
cleaning house, laundry, and helping prepare meals just to name a few. Many boys from my home town have killed and dressed their first deer by this age and are responsible in the handling of firearms and knives.Sin is sin. Wicked is wicked. Its almost hard to be alive without noticing the decline.
