    another concern was that “the living conditions were deplorable.”

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Wow. This makes me sick. Yet another family who doesn't check on their child for a ridiculous amount of time. I can't even begin to wrap my head around that.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Little guy's obituary. Heartbreaking.





    http://www.johnsoncitypress.com/Obit...e.php?id=31713



    You don't check on a toddler for 14 hours? Was he out of diapers? If not wouldn't you have to change the little guy? If he was wouldn't you have had to take him to potty?

    What a horrific way to die.

    About the only thing I can say is at least they didn't try to hide his body and say he had been kidnapped.

    They stayed up so late so maybe they slept until 1 pm thinking that he would make noise and wake them up when he woke up and wanted changing and feeding, only he didn't because he was dead.

    Do they have any other children that would have been awake?

    No, I see the obituary doesn't list any siblings among the survivors.

    I'm wondering why a child that young wasn't in a crib. Isn't 22 months rather young to be in a bed? Unless he could climb out of the crib. I don't know. Why was there a thumbtack in his room?

    My daughter will sleep for 8 or 9 hours and then play quietly for another 3 or so.
    It drives me NUTS. I WANT her to wake me up when she wakes up and she doesn't.

    We have pushpins all over because that is originally what was used to put up all the things on the walls.

    I haven't had a single child that was still in a crib at 22 months. Doctors advise taking them out of the crib when they begin climbing, to prevent accidents. All of mine have been in a toddler bed by about 18 months because by that point, they were climbing well enough that the crib was both useless and dangerous.

    As far as why there was a tack in the baby's room, there are plenty of tacks in plenty of babies rooms, just to hold things on the walls, but in this case, because they cited deplorable living conditions, there were likely a lot of things in a lot of places they didn't belong.

    I can't understand not checking on a kid for that long. That's the part of this that just can't be explained away for me. I think that longest I've ever gone without checking on mine was 8 hours, and that was because I was too sick with the flu to get out of bed and check on them.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Thanks NMK. I think I kept my daughter in the crib longer, but she wasn't a climber. My memory is really bad so I'm not sure. Thanks for the information.

    I remember waking up in a panic one morning when my baby was about 10 months old. It was about 9 am and I hadn't heard a peep on the monitor, which is why I was still asleep.

    I leapt out of bed, ran down the hall, and burst into her room, already feeling the hysteria rising.

    She was sleeping peacefully, awoke when I barged in, and sat up smiling and happy.

    I have never felt more foolish or relieved in my life. I know I am a bit extreme, but how can anyone not check on a baby for 14 hours?

    Shameful.
